Petition: Make malicious reporting of benefit fraud illegal

December 11, 2011 at 1:49 pm 10 comments

With Crimestoppers now being used  as a weapon against benefit claimants, it is now more important than ever that we seek protection under the law.  As the law stands people reporting benefit fraud, have anonimity, and can not be held accountable, even if they made the report out of malice.  This petition  seeks a change in the law so that those who knowingly accuse the innocent can be made to answer for their actions.

    Excellent idea – that’ll see Cameron, IDS, Osborne, IDS’s SpAds and Grayling behind bars in pretty short order!

    wish people realised how much some disabled people have to live on … i don’t think the basic incapasity benefit of £96 per week goes very far … its the people fit to work that get benefits long term that should be reported …

      I don’t think anyone would disagree with that. What worries me is the way the Government define fit to work.

    I wouldn’t report anyone for benefit fraud under any circumsances, as you cannot know for sure the person’s situation. This is a classic case of mainstream government’s divide and rule tactics – welfare claimant against working person, etc. Don’t rise to it. New workers’ party now! http://www.tusc.org.uk

      One idea, send him an open letter, if you blog is to write an open letter, you can also send it to him. A copy to your MP helps make sure you get a reply. The Daily Mail has a letters page, or you could make your views known to a more friendly publication
