I'm actually very angry now - because by resigning, Iain Duncan Smith gets away with EVERYTHING!
The sheer HELL he's put us through, - lies, psychological torture!
By resigning there will be little come-back, short of criminal investigations -(which let's be honest, aren't going to happen).
The minute he resigned I knew he was going to pass the buck and lie through his teeth about his reasons.
Don't for one single second believe that he has a conscience.
Six years of lies, spin, vilification through 'scrounger rhetoric' and doctored figures. Six years of misery, anxiety, thousands and thousands of deaths, and his blatant disregard for the rule of law, - and he's pretending he cares, now?!
He makes me sick!
I've suffered nightmares due to his policies - (fear of Work Compatibility Assessment). I've been terrified in my own home! I still am, and I will be until these policies which have punished and terrified disabled and ill people for six years are stopped!
I'm luckier than a lot of people, - I have support -but it doesn't stop me being terrified.
Cerebral Palsy doesn't improve. In fact I've deteriorated and will continue to do so, as a result of wear and tear on my body - but I still have to face the Work Compatibility Assessment, and it terrifies me.
Being labelled a 'scrounger' by the government and the complicit mainstream media, has added to my lifelong battle with depression, destroyed what self esteem I had built up, and left me feeling anxious.
He doesn't care about any of that. He doesn't care that he has inflicted six years of cuts. Thousands of disabled and ill people are DEAD as a result. When has he shown compassion about that? When did he put things in place to change the devastating policies that are destroying so many lives?!
Friends say that he cares about 'social justice' and 'protecting the poor' .
I spat out my tea when I heard that this morning!
Is forcing people out of their homes because of Bedroom Tax 'social justice'?!
Is stripping dying people of vital social security, social justice?!
Is the fact that people have been stripped of their only income and have to rely on food banks, social justice?
Is labelling disabled and ill people 'scroungers' and stripping them of vital support, independence and dignity 'social justice'?!
I think not - and it certainly isn't 'protecting the poorest' either is it?!
He hasn't done this because the latest cuts are 'a step too far'! He is done this for himself, and his own agenda.
It's an effective way to destabilise the government prior to the EU referendum, and it's an effective way to stab George Osborne in the back.
He thought up the policies which have destroyed the lives of disabled and ill people. HE did! Blaming the treasury is a way of passing the buck - and with the assistance of much of the mainstream media, he might well get away with it.
As for celebrating the end of his 'reign of terror' - many people are. There is precious little to celebrate for disabled and ill people since 2010, so who would begrudge us this?
As for me, I'll be celebrating when I know I don't have to face the WCA, when the devastating policies are stopped, and when I can feel safe and a wanted part of society again.
I'll be celebrating the day this government goes!
