Churches say to Prime Minister that he should stop stigmatising the poor based on minsinformation

Posted on

I think this letter needs no further explanation, but a definite note of thanks for the key line:

We ask you, as Prime Minister and as leader of the Conservative Party, to ensure that the record is put straight, and that statistics are no longer manipulated in a way which stigmatises the poorest in our society. We promise to support you in efforts to ensure that debates on poverty are rooted in fact and not on assertion.
