The fastest way to answer this question is to refer you to all our coverage of Iain Duncan Smith since he was put in charge of Work and Pensions. Of course he has only resigned from the cabinet – not as an MP. His resignation is unexpected however. We understand it was because of the overwhelming public response in opposition to the planned cuts for disabled people. He thinks taking money away from the disabled to fund tax cuts for the extremely wealthy is right and the public simply disagree with that. Specifically this is money to provide help for disabled people to get washed, dressed and go to the toilet. It’s the kind of thing most people take for granted. Iain Duncan Smith is opposed to the reversal of this plan – which gives you an idea of what he is really like.
