Politicians have to lie of course, they are professional liars and extremely good at it too. Ministers at the DWP claimed that the majority of people on disability living allowance were given benefits for life without any supporting medical evidence.

Press releases by the department says more than 50% of decisions on entitlement are made on the basis of the claim form alone, without any additional corroborating medical evidence.

The actual percentage is 10% found by the UK statistics authority. I am not surprised by these statistics and the lies that the politics uses to manipulate the audience the question what should we do about it, can we accept being lied to all the time?
