We’ve had about 6 months of stories about expenses fraud, and news about poor judgement in the highest reaches of the economy. So is now really a good time to start showing these highly stereotyped advertisements about benefit fraud?
Bearing in mind that the former Work and Pensions minister, James Purnell, would have been the person to have commissioned this public information film, isn’t it ironic that Purnell has been accused of fraud himself.
For the record, the last advertisement I was offended at was one for Nuts magazine (or was it Zoo?).
