The poster features an image a turbulent sea and says: “The Perfect Storm. Starring: Zero Hours Contracts, High Prices, Benefit Cuts, Unemployment, Childcare Costs”

The charity previewed the poster on Twitter with a provocative tweet claiming it was “lifting the lid on austerity Britain”.

The poster quickly drew criticism from political commentators

Conservative MP Conor Burns also revealed that he has written to the Charity Commission over the poster. The MP described it as “highly political”.

According to a report by the TaxPayers’ Alliance, Oxfam receives nearly £16m of government money through the Department for International Development
