So the architect of the Tories War on the Disabled, a vile little man responsible for many deaths and imposed uncountable levels of misery on some of the weakest and most vulnerable members of society has resigned.
And in doing so has stuck the knife into the equally sociopathic Chancellor George Osborne and twisted it.
Both Tim Farron and Jeremy Corbyn are calling for Osborne’s resignation.
Iain Duncan-Smith is not trying to do an Albert Speer at Nuremberg, trying to shift the blame after it’s all gone down in flames. His action is a totally cynical move that has nothing to do with any new-found concern for the disabled. It’s all about the Europe referendum, and his ambitions for a high rank in the cabinet of the equally cynical Boris Johnson following a British exit from Europe.
The phoney war is over, and now, despite being in government, the Tories are in full-blown civil war, the consequence of David Cameron’s ill-judged and opportunistic decision to hold his referendum.
We live in interesting times. It’s a shame we don’t have an effective and electable opposition…
