The Guardian published a list of popular myths that have taken hold and debunked them. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2013/apr/24/10-great-urban-myths-debunked
1 We don't make anything in the UK any more: In fact, manufacturing contributes around 11% of GDP, versus around 9% from the City
2 The benefits bill is spent on unemployed and disabled people: In fact, half of UK benefit spending actually goes on state pensions. And benefit fraud is estimated at 0.7% of the benefits bill. At £1.2bn, this is actually less than the amount that is underclaimed.
