Callous Prime Minister David Cameron claimed yesterday that his vicious welfare cuts are restoring "dignity" to British families.
Mr Cameron spouted a torrent of Orwellian phrases when Labour MPs tackled him about the cruel effects of his policies.
He declared: "We want to see more dignity, more security, more stability in the lives of British families and we are making choices consistent with that."
He even claimed that cuts in housing benefit and welfare payments meant that the government was able to put more money into the NHS.
Sheffield Labour MP Paul Blomfield told the PM at Question Time that one of his constituents was waiting for a kidney transplant and needed three five-hour dialysis sessions each week.
"But in the Prime Minister's Britain he has been told by the job centre that he is fit for work."
Mr Cameron breezily suggested that Mr Blomfield should write to him about the case.
Then he declared: "The reason we have been able to put more money into the NHS is we have taken tough and difficult decisions on welfare."
Hackney MP Diane Abbott spotlighted the increasing trend for private landlords to refuse to take tenants receiving housing benefit or to evict them.
"What does he say to hard-working families who face losing their homes because of his housing benefit cuts?" she asked.
Mr Cameron retorted: "We are saying to hard-working families, we are cutting your taxes."
He said the government needed to take action to cut the £23 billion bill for housing benefit.
Labour members shouted "how many?" when Mr Cameron went on to declare that when he came into office "there were some families in London getting 60, 70 or 80,000 pounds."
The dodgy PM resorted to more double speak when challenged by Blaenau Gwent Labour MP Nick Smith over corporate tax evasion.
Mr Smith recalled that Mr Cameron had promised a year ago to "make damned sure that foreign companies pay higher taxes."
Yet weekend reports showed that technology companies such as Apple and e-bay were paying even less tax.
Mr Cameron replied that "huge progress" had been made in tackling tax evasion.
