I'm sorry, I couldn't get more than half way through. I was close to throwing something at my computer speakers or screaming. I object to being screwed over by smug, rich politicians, but I object more when they're gormless.
When I say gormless, it's not a question of how much intelligence he does or doesn't have, it's a question of whether he uses it. Without wishing to sound patronising, I seem to recall someone on BBC Ouch with learning difficulties/low intelligence (I assume below 70?) whom I would trust far more to run the benefits system because she actually used what intelligence she had, unlike IDS.
What really hacks me off about him, though, is that I think he actually set out to reform the benefits system with good intentions.
