Curbing immigrant access to benefits

It is clever of Jon Trickett MP to dress up curbing immigrant access to benefits (for two years after arrival) as a measure designed to help immigrants (by making their employment by unscrupulous employers uneconomic).

This is a masterly example of Orwellian doublethink and doublespeak.

By rebranding access to in-work benefits as a subsidy to employers he is making it palatable for lefties to bash immigrants.
