  • Benefit culture
    • Aspects portrayed as deviant
      • Scrounging off the state
      • Getting benefits unlawfully
      • Claiming and not working when you can
      • Having large families on the state
    • What values are being threatened
      • Hard work and effort
      • Independence and fending for yourself
    • I believe this is a moral panic as different types of media (especially right-wing media) emphasises how many people get benefits and how much they get
    • Shows such as benefits Britain over-emphasise the problems with benefits
