Today some hold a view that the past's "deserving poor" have been replaced by families living in council houses equipped with flat-screen TVs, games consoles and regular holidays.
It great to see the BBC used a picture of a scrounger from Coronation street.
Of course the BBC would love us to think it pay no homage to the Labour or Tory parties, but each time Labour did a green paper on welfare, the BBC brought out a program about scroungers. so who were the people that demonized the sick the poor and the sick, well of course Tony Blair David Cameron Brown and Miliband with the great help of the media and the BBC wihich was at the forefront.
Even now we have on TV saints and scroungers or is that sinners.
What a bloody nerve
