Petition: IDS - time to stop the lies
« on: November 12, 2014, 05:04:35 PM »
I'm not sure if this has been posted elsewhere on the board, but Jayne Linney and Debbie Sayers have started another petition.

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/investigate-ids-for-lies

Quote
To Kathryn Hudson Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Use the full Powers of the Commission and investigate Iain Duncan Smith Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, for his regular use of untruths and the persistent deception misleading of The House of Commons, Select Committees and the Media.



Quote
Why is this important?

There are numerous reports and accounts of our claim including the findings of the Work and Pensions Select Committee and the Public Accounts committee:
 
http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmselect/cmworpen/394/39404.htm


Further 105,344 people agreed with Debbie Sayers and myself when we called for Hold Iain Duncan Smith to be held to  account for misusing statistics

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/iain-duncan-smith-must-face-2912624
 
to no avail, this is despite the Government agreeing that "statistics should be presented in a way that is fair, accurate and 'unspun' ".




Quote
These distorted 'facts' are used to further deprive disabled people of the essential benefits needed to manage their conditions; so far the 'Cuts' have resulted in disabled people losing an average of 4,410 per person -  9 times more than the burden placed on most other citizens:

These mis-truths are also responsible for justifying the latest proposals, irrelevant of the Evidence:

Iain Duncan Smith continues to ignore his Government and persists in misusing statistics, and it is for these reasons we believe it is time for the Powers of the Commissioner for standards to be exercised, and for Iain Duncan Smith to be independently and openly investigated for breach of Conduct.

Signed.  I pray that in a few weeks time this odious little man will be given the bum's rush.
