Facebook to add “reality” tag to Iain Duncan Smith

19 Aug

Pride's Purge

(satire?)

Facebook has begun labelling comments and speeches from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Iain Duncan Smith with a “reality” tag, just in case people think he might be a parody.

The move comes after many people thought Mr Duncan Smith was taking the p*ss when he claimed people were now “better off” after his welfare and pension reforms.

Other comments by Mr Duncan Smith that the government was creating a “fairer society” by cutting school and NHS budgets while at the same time giving tax cuts to multi-millionaires were also regarded by many people as a joke.

Facebook said the “reality” label was meant to appease users who have apparently complained that they can’t always tell the difference between a caricature of a nasty, heartless, out-of-touch Tory who would sell his own grandmother at the drop of a hat and Duncan Smith.
