' I think I could rest easy

if a few benefit cheats were really Britain's Biggest Social Problem.'
Hmm, depends what you mean by a 'few'. It's also a wide scope how to be a 'benefit cheat' and there are many ways to defraud the country. Wonder how many 'cheat', even in little ways, and get away with it?
