Had a search, found nothing so I'm posting this.
Tory nincompoop Ian Duncan Smith has, rather stupidly, claimed that he could survive on £53 a week if he had to. Here's an article from the guardian:
There's also a petition now doing the rounds, people are signing it in an attempt to force Mr Smiths hand...prove it.
I'm kinda hoping this goes postal on his idiotic posterior, so please sign if you can and leave a comment, the pettion (huge URL warning):
To be honest I don't see him proving anything, he knows fine well he can't do it. He'll no doubt, in the face of overwhelming response conjure up some
lame excuse as to why he can't.
It's pretty disgusting, reading some of the comments left on the petition is rather disheartening, some people have proper hard lives. I thought mine
was of low quality but I'm not half as bad off as some of those guys. This idiotic MP has no clue the reality of the world he sails through in luxury
and comfort. Emotionally detached and out of touch. While being disheartening it's also good in a way, people are beginning to see it more and more
clearly, every day it becomes more obvious that we're being conned and scammed by these clowns...I think we're close to a proper breaking point.
Too stupid to realise that the poor people he's robbing even more are the very people who feed and house his family by paying his salary. He's no
kind of man, he'd never get by on £53 week, if it weren't for him being in such a privileged position he'd never manage a family...no skills,
inadequate and useless in the real world. He'd be a shell of a man unable to provide for his family, much the many of the people he's robbing some
Anyways, just thought I'd pop it up here and see what people think, thanks. Sorry if it's been discussed, I did have a search...also apologies if I
chose the wrong forum, don't often make political posts but this is infuriating.
