Dear Mr Cameron,
Iain Duncan Smith might be as smug as a cockroach after a nuclear blast
about being regarded as ‘a hate figure in some circles’, as Julia
Hartley-Brewer put it in an interview on LBC radio, but he is
accountable to the people of this nation and, one way or another, he
will be held to account.
He has lied throughout his time as
head of the DWP (and before) frequently quoting unpublished yet
grandiose figures that bear no relation to reality. His language and
attitude towards people requiring the aid of our social security system
is the language of demonisation and fraud, saying such things as it was,
‘no life to lead to accept the fact that you languish on benefits,
trying to avoid ways of getting back to work’.
So effective has
your government propaganda been that disability hate crime, according
to Crown Prosecution Service figures, alone has soared 213% since
2007/08 and this only accounts for incidents that have been reported.
His recent fudged report on benefit related deaths which he fought for
months to suppress is an indictment against him and his vile regime.
It is welcoming to see that a UN Special Rapporteur is to visit the UK
in the near future to investigate whether Iain Duncan Smith’s welfare
reforms have caused ‘grave or systematic violations’ of disabled
peoples’ human rights. I do not doubt that he will dismiss both the
visit and the findings just as he did the investigation and report by
Raquel Rolnik into the bedroom tax.
Smith has caused immense
suffering and, indeed, people have lost their lives and been driven to
take their own lives through his actions and arrogant assertion that he
has a belief that he is right. This war on the poor must end and Jeremy
Corbyn calling for his resignation is the very least of what Smith
should pay for the anguish and suffering he has directly caused and is
responsible for, aided by a media that has abandoned investigative
reporting to become a political poodle mouthpiece for spreading hate and
