It's a good job that there are people around with the moral standing to correct the appalling bias pumped out every day by The BBC. People like David Vance, for example:
Ever wonder WHY so many immigrants queue up to get into Britain?
David tells us why. He quotes approvingly from the Sunday Times:
SOME families have been paid almost £200,000 each in housing benefit to live in some of the country’s most expensive areas, figures released under the Freedom of Information Act show. The highest-paid include a family in Oxford who have received £189,694 since January 2004 for a seven-bedroom house. It costs the taxpayer £521 a week in rent. A similar total has been paid to a family in Camden, north London. A claimant in Westminster has been paid £76,000 in 12 months.
Not surprising they're living in lousy conditions in Calais, you might think, if it means a cheque for £200,000 once they get here.
David helpfully hammers the point home.
More than 4.4m people receive housing benefit. The Department for Work and Pensions said it was continuing to look at reforms to the system.There is an annual spend of some £15 BILLION in housing benefit and it needs axed.
There is just the slightest problem with the Vance analysis (apart from his inability to finish his sentences properly): The Sunday Times report has no mention of immigrants. There is no suggestion that people queuing up to get into Britain have benefitted from these sums. At all.
We are lucky to have Mr Vance among us, exposing, as he is proud to promise, the reporting bias of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
