A whole new spin
September 10, 2010
Crippen’s ‘spin’ cartoon description – Cameron, in a blue suit, shirt and tie is holding a piece of paper that reads ‘find reasons to target claimants’. Facing him is another white man dressed identically. He is saying to Cameron: “So we changed the figures around like this and we have a whole new spin on the situation!” On the wall between them are two big signs. One reads ‘Benefit Fraud’ and the figure has been changed from 2 billion to 120 billion. The other sign reads ‘Tax gap’ and the figures have been changed from 120 billion to 2 billion.
