Could be something, could be nothing but I’m hearing a lot of the following phrase in UK politics.
“hard working families”
The thing is, I can’t help feeling that the phrase is being deliberately rolled out to get people in work aggravated at people not in work, especially the so called “benefit scroungers”.
Google Trends does a nice (if unscientific) job of showing the use of “hard working” and “benefit scrounger” over time
Is this divisive social manipulation designed to get the masses to support a political ideology or is it just nothing?
