Like a previous poster said.
Which is worse, lying with the intent to claim benefits, where the harm to society is negligible
lying as a politician to win an election and get thousands of benefits at great expense to the whole nation.
If the punishment for posing as soldier to get benefits is prison time,
then to scale up the damage being done, a lying politician should face execution.

I think most are missing the "with intent to benefit" part of the law.
I was a soldier for a long time. As long as there are soldiers there will be war stories. As long as there are war stories there will be lies.
It the same as fishing. No body is going to charge you for telling outlandish fishing stories. However, if you lie about catching a fish to win a
tourny, you will most likely be charged.
