Public chips in with some #FakeDWPStories for government after bogus benefit sanction leaflets revelation

Public takes to Twitter to mock government strategy


MEMBERS of the public predictably took to Twitter on Tuesday to express their ire at the UK Government after it emerged

the DWP had faked leaflets about benefits sanctions

to put the policy in a better light.

In typical Twitter style, users had a scathing tongue-in-cheek response to the news and quickly created the #FakeDWPStories and #FakeSanctionsQuote hashtags to helpfully suggest some new lines for the government.

We've rounded a few up to save you the bother.
