its nice to see that world wide, people on welfare are considered nothing but bludgers...
"A Bludger is a round, jet black ball, made of iron, and is used in the wizarding sport of Quidditch. It is ten inches in diameter. There are two Bludgers used in every match, which are bewitched to fly around and try to knock the players off of their brooms."
News Corp’s attempt to paint millennials as lazy layabouts, more interested in government payouts than working, has been debunked with one of the women featured in a front-page splash admitting she had lied to The Daily Telegraph.
Last Thursday the paper splashed with an image of Amy Arman and Ashleigh Whiting under the banner ‘A new breed of bludger’, and carried an interview with the pair in which they said they would rather laze about at McDonald’s and go off-roading in their Holden Barina than get jobs.
However, today the paper ran a story on page two with the father of Arman claiming that the original story was based on lies from a “silly little teenager” who he said had a job at McDonald’s.
The revelations cast a shadow over the Daily Telegraph’s journalistic processes with questions around how a teenager’s unsubstantiated comments made it to the front page without basic fact-check or consultation with her parents.
