The Sun - 'Voters on dole keep Labour MPs in jobs'

Today’s exclusive story for The Sun shows the full extent of the Labour party’s reliance on voters on benefits. Using official statistics, we compiled a league table ranking seats according to the percentage of people claiming out-of-work handouts Jobseekers Allowance, Incapacity Benefit and Employment Support Allowance. It revealed how 177 seats in the first 200 are held by Labour. Just 16 are held by Conservatives, and six by the Liberal Democrats. It led to Conservative MP Priti Patel saying: “It says a great deal why Labour are trying to stop benefit reform. They should be acting in the best interests of the country, not worrying about their job security.”
