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.
