One day they can be telling the world you need to be forced into unpaid work, because the scale of  colossal fraud or deliberate idleness on a scale no one predicted needs to be addressed.  When it is addressed they can be adamant that ”Workfare is transparently unfair to most people, substituting slave labour for big companies” and be keen to stick their hat on protest against it.

It really does mean that this kind of press is really useless for anything but perpetuating tribalist ephemera. Workfare works, protest works….depending on what the current position of their preferred party is.
