    I hope the fat tw*t gets sacked (not likely I know, but I can dream can’t I?) and has to claim JSA…ha ha ha ha! Mind you he’s on his third heiress so he can live off her.
    He’s a failed army officer, a failed tory leader and a liar to boot!

    what are the realistic chances of Iain Duncan shitting himself?

    I hope Duncan Smith is called to account and is made to face a Public Enquiry for his misleading use of statistics. He should then be to made to make a full public apology, on the Front Pages of all Newspapers, and then he should be kicked out of the Tory Party, once and for all.

    IDS Your Fired. The legal bit is with the DWP & it`s misuse & breach of the Data Protection Act. Untruths & false information on DWP`s contracted company ATOS with false Medicals. The Legality lies with the DWP`s DPO [Data Protection Officer]. The onus is on the Burden of proof against breaches with no proof & not fit for Purpose.

    It Is Not Me To Prove Who I Am, It Is For You To Prove Who You Are.

    Am I The Only One Who Has Not Filled Out Or Sent Back The ESA [default] Form. So an unpresidented view then.

    DWP I am a freedom fighter & I don`t Plea Bargin.

    Through opening up the DWP with the Data Protection Act it opens up the other 20 or so other companies the DWP contract to do parts of the DWP`s jobs. ATOS / UNUM / TRIAGE / INTREGRITY / HOMES & COUNTY TAX HAVENS / on & on & on. For Corporate Manslaughter Flag Shipped By The PM the Star Of David is very bad under pressure. Fooling Wasted Money On Your Eton Education with no knowledge of educatiion & thick as two planks to employ boot lickers & Cut Corners On Your Flag Ships.

    I Am A Very Bad Cash Cow – I Will Cost you money A lot Of Money.

    Onus DPA – It is for the DWP`s Lawyer at £300 An Hour [not us] to read the 700 pages of the Data Protection Act to find loop holes. Once they didn`t find any they try & find A way To Twist The Queens English. Like “Disabled” are now called “Bodies” Dead Bodies Company With No Leader A Dead Body To Pay No Tax.
    Is IDS paying his taxes !! He Can`t Seem To Count !! Oh Fiddle Sticks !!

    The Walfare Reform Bill Is The Biggest Scandal Since The Thalidomide Scandal in the 1950`s & 1960`s.

    Q. Who Is Responable For The DWP ?
    A. The PM.
    Because IDS got Fired.

    Breaking Down The Barriers.

    The Emotional Stress Is Imposed By ATOS to make you think ATOS are the ones at fault & can`t be touched hiding behind the DWP. Yes People It Is Not ATOS in breach of the DPA it is their boss the DWP. The DWP have off loaded liability to ATOS. = Breach Of Contract. You are the boss DWP & if You Can`t Keep Your Companies In Line Then You Will Be Sacked Like IDS.

    Remember DWP it`s £300 An Hour For Your Lawyers.

    ONUS THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS STACKED WITH THE DISABLED PERSON.

    Not with Breaches & Not Fit For Purpose Paper Work = Breaking The Data Protection Act = Makes The Whole Process Invalid = The Welfare Reform Bill is not fit for Purpose.

    They forgot it is not a political issue, It is a Human Rights Issue Of Freedom & Equailty For All.

    So Corporate Manslaughter Charges DWP & every Company You Employ – Now Its ATOS`s Turn For Corporate Manslaughter – Money Laundering – ID Laundering – ID Fraud with the DWP & IDS.

    UNUM / ATOS – HEALTHCARE PEST CONTROLLERS

    What Made You Think Of Taking Up The US failed Outlawed Walfare Reform Bill & using the same failed system in the UK Mr David ex – PM Not Fit For Work Or Purpose.

    Words Are There To Be Used not twisted.

    RESULT – A NEW & FAIR DISABILITY DISCRIMATION LAW
    So Gendocide From Their Own Government On The Disabiled Will Never Be Aloud To Happen Ever Again.

    Charles Dickens times they used to have work houses, but in these times 2013 they have closed all the work houses down.

    I am Incensed with how Bloody Well Brainwashed People are
    out There in the Alleged ” Real World ” Oblivious to the Tory
    Responsibility for the Un Employment Situation and the Evil
    Oppression of the Poor by the Moralless Rich

    It is Not the Poor who Need to Learn Morality it is the
    Filthy Feckless Rich

    Anyone who Thinks that only by having Money can Anyone
    have any Morals is Part of the Problem because Rich People
    with Lots of Money have No Morals because they are Corrupted
    by Obscene Wealth as Well as Blinded by Obscene Wealth just
    as Obscene Poverty Degrades People Not Least in this Con Dem

    “This report outlines 35 cases where Ministerial claims using statistics on the subject of Work and Benefits have fallen short of the standards expected of Government Ministers.

    We believe that this demonstrates a consistent pattern of abuse of official statistics by Ministers of the present Government to paint a false picture of benefit claimants in the UK in support of policies which are aimed at cost cutting to the detriment of jobless, sick and disabled people.

    Within this document, each case is presented, and fully referenced to source material throughout.”

    It’s interesting that IDS was given special mention during George Osborne’s Spending Statement last week. He was praised for his success in getting people back to work. During the following mention, IDS grinned his usual irritating grin & looked embarrassed to have even be mentioned. It was as if it was nothing to him: he had that ‘you ain’t seen nothing yet’ smile.

    Here is the link to Osborne’s full speech & the specific mention of IDS,
    https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/spending-round-2013-speech
    My Right Honourable Friend the Work and Pensions Secretary changed the national debate about welfare and he has comprehensively won the argument.
    He has committed to finding a further 9.5 per cent savings in his department’s running costs.
    That will require a difficult drive for efficiency, and a hard-headed assessment of under-performing programmes.

    With all of this praise being heaped on a Duncan-Smith in parliament and on national television, the whole issue of his being hauled up by the Select Committee seems to have been swept under the carpet. It was certainly not mentioned by Labour.

    I’ve also given up the expectation of hearing any mention of it on the national news, as the BBC seems to have swapped investigative political journalism for being a censored mouthpiece for the current government. I question if they are being threatened with financial cuts if they don’t tow the line?
    A Cabinet Minister being hauled up for lying is big news, yet not one journalist is following this story up on the BBC website.
    Surely this has to be tackled?
