George Osborne claims his own experts are wrong about benefit tourism – despite ‘no proof’ it exists – Mirror Online

The Chancellor insisted people “abuse free movement just to come to our country and claim our benefits” in the face of doubts by the Office of Budget Responsibility he set up.

Despite repeated attempts to get the Tory ideologues to produce some evidence for their claims they have been unable to do so.

Even when good old Neil Kinnock asked in the Lords for all the DWP factual evidence, they couldn’t produce any.

Downing Street gave the game away when it admitted that the ban is based on one of four areas of “greatest concern” to the British public. But not on evidence. Another ideologically driven policy.
