HALF THE STORY, ALL THE TIME
It all seems so plausible.
Families with children will be hardest hit by tax and benefit changes aimed at cutting the deficit, a charity argues. The Family and Parenting Institute (FPI) says the average income of households with children will drop by 4.2% between 2010-11 and 2015-16, the equivalent of £1,250 a year.
Thank goodness for the FPI, right? I mean it is doing us all a favour in exposing the cruelty of Coalition policy. Making the poor poorer,
Here’s the odd thing. The FPI quango was set up by Labour as its main advisor on the future of the family. So, just to be accurate, the alleged “charity” is a Labour Party front producing a report which – quelle surprise – is critical of the Government. Whatever next? I have no issue with the BBC reporting the faux story – the rest of the UK MSM has followed – but I think it has an obligation to spell out who the Family and Parenting Institute is so that we can then make our minds up on the validity of the report, don’t you?
