The obnoxious, evil little ****
Iain Duncan Smith has decided to resign as Work and Pensions Secretary in the face of further cuts to his department.
Announcing his resignation in a letter, he said: "I have for some time and rather reluctantly come to believe that the latest changes to benefits to the disabled and the context in which they've been made are, a compromise too far.
"While they are defensible in narrow terms, given the continuing deficit, they are not defensible in the way they were placed within a Budget that benefits higher earning taxpayers.
"They should have instead been part of a wider process to engage others in finding the best way to better focus resources on those most in need."
Probably spat his dummy because they wouldn't actually let him eat the poor and disabled. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Shhhhh!!!!!!! Exit the Quiet Man! The Tories are coming apart at the seams and it's making for great viewing!
he also questions that 'we're all in together' at the end of his resignation letter
The wheels are falling off. Who's next?
Oh good. Vile little man.
Oh please Gove .... Then Morgan. Shall we have a sweepstake?
"We're all in it together" was never more than a cheap soundbite. A more accurate version would have been: "We've dropped you all in it together, peasants."
I'd rather Cameron and Osborne.
Maybe Cameron will decide he needs to sacrifice Osborne since so many Tories are opposed to that part of his budget.
It's a very odd letter, his objection over the presentation of the cuts rather than their fact doing him no credit. This is a sign of how remote he and his chums are from the rest of Britain.
maybe they are too closely entwined?
i've just read that again. sorry for the images.
I can't think of an occasion when I have listened to anything that despicable creep has had to say that was a benefit to mankind. He embodied everything we should loathe about the Nasty party.
I wish the majority of the politicians, media wonks and commentators who keep talking about 'disabled people' would resign.
It's 'people with disabilities' and it's what we fought for, for years.
The system disables people by labelling them as 'disabled people'.
I despair at how far in reverse we have gone since we actually started to think about the labelling of people. It worked for a while and now we are almost back at square one.
Maybe it's this tory government and its involvement in the coalition meaning it's been in control for about eight years now.
They really are the most unthinking heartless people around.
Always remember what capitalism is about. It's about ripping each other apart until there is one winner.
It's all about the top of the pile.
At its root it is dog-eat-dog with no mercy and fight until the bitter end.
Capitalism will always be aggressor/victim-based.
It is pure selfishness.
You benefit at the expense of someone else.
Socialism is a mess because people forgot what it was to be a socialist but, capitalism is desperately vicious.
Osborne is a dead man walking and certainly no future leader. Cameron will not go this side of the referendum. He has no shame.
He's running scared because he has to hand over the impact assessment of the DWP
