On Friday I mentioned on another thread the 'Sack REbel MPs and get on with Brexit' headline from the Daily Express. I'm not the only person on social media who pointed out that such a move would destroy May's majority. So would be self defeating
Today we have another of those ridiculous headlines which a moment's thought would tell us that its effect would be the opposite of what it proclaims as 'good'
The Sun splashes: BRITISH workers are set for an overtime bonanza after Brexit, it was revealed last night.
They base this on the Cabinet extreme Brexiter's drive to scrap the EU Working Time directive which limits working hours to 48 per week.
This will give workers the opportunity to work extra hours for overtime payment, The Sun claims.
Well, someone prove me wrong on this, but in all the time we have been in the EU I have never noticed that people have been prevented from overtime working, even Sun readers must be aware of this, surely?
But the real foot shooter is that if the legal limit to working hours is scrapped 'overtime' would no longer exist, so where's the benefit?
Did Leavers vote for being expected to work longer hours for no overtime pay?
(My thoughts, which will remain unexpressed here, contain the word 'turkies')
Does anyone else have examples of misleading pro-Brexit media stories to share?
