ONS rebukes Labour over zero-hours poster per

More Labour lies exposed?
'The Office for National Statistics has issued a correction to a Labour claim that '1.8 million people' are on zero-hours contracts.

The ONS official Twitter account picked up on a new posted that quoted the figure, pointing out that there are actually 1.8 million contracts, but only 697,000 people have a zero-hours contract for their main job.'

More here but not at the BBC who are more than ever in full VOTE LABOUR mode.

In that the Labour party employs quite a lot of people on zero-hours contracts, it a case of what my mum used to say "Don't do as I do, Do as I say"!

Surely all those who are self employed are on zero hours?
My plumber only works when someone rings him up to fix a problem; the same with a friend who fixes computers.
Labour is keen to make mountains out of molehills; zero hours contracts, the bedroom "tax" which isn't a tax, and other trivia about minor issues. Nothing about major issues or where the money is coming from except as taxes on the rich.
And definitely nothing about immigration.
