The Trial of a Proud Man: Evidence against Iain Duncan Smith

the_great_ids   Iain Duncan Smith has spoken a number of times about his pride in the welfare reforms he’s presided over. He’s dismissed all criticisms and poo-pooed all the evidence that these reforms are causing hardship.

Imagine that IDS could be put on trial for the harm he’s done (I wish) and evidence was presented for the prosecution. What would that evidence be? Where would we begin to start? Well, here’s an interesting video from February this year. It shows three well educated, articulate  people appearing before the Scottish Parliament’s Welfare Reform Committee, telling how they suffered at the hands of Atos. Its a long video, over an hour and a half, but its well worth watching.

So, anyone going to present any evidence for the defence?
