Scavenger Hunt 6.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2448792/Lesbian-mother-falsely-claimed-60-000-benefits-failing-declare-living-lorry-driver-girlfriend.html

  • Awkward phrasing like “lorry driver girlfriend”

 

  • Misuse of words such as “She sobbed in the dock at Southampton Crown Court”

 

  • No editing – “after an an anonymous tip-off”

 

  • Strange wording choice – “Webb received a total of £91,251.18 in housing benefits, council tax benefits and income support over a seven year period, the court heard”
  • Unnecessary words/information that doesn’t fit right – “The pair, from the city, were caught out by the Department of Work and Pensions”
