IDS: This Is a ‘National Humiliation’

IDS ‘Keeping Options Open’ on MV3

“I am going to keep, and I recommend my colleagues keep, their options open on this, because we don’t know what’s going to happen this week. We don’t know what the alternatives are and whether we vote for this or not depends hugely on whether we are able to leave with no deal or not.”

Guido agrees.

IDS, Mike Gapes, and Wes Streeting Locked In Prison

Fiona Onasanya isn’t the only MP to be locked away in prison this week. Iain Duncan Smith, Mike Gapes, and Wes Streeting are all spending the day in the slammer to raise money for ‘Every Life Has A Purpose’, a charity offering play opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged children. They each have to raise £1,000 to make bail…

At the time of writing, IDS has smashed through the target to £1,255, Wes is nearly there with £800, but Mike is languishing on just £195. You could go to their fundraising pages to let Wes and Mike go free. But on the other hand…

IDS on Theresa May’s Brexit Negotiating Style

“Authoritarian? I wouldn’t actually describe the PM as being authoritarian because she doesn’t exactly have a lot of authority at the moment.”

Cameron Lovebombs IDS and Osborne

Cameron lavishes praise on IDS, whom he supposedly thinks is a “dishonourable sh*t”, and says his government would have achieved nothing without Osborne, of whom he privately said “it is all his fault”. The submarine Chancellor will re-emerge tomorrow…

IDS Bows to DWP Fake Outrage

IDS has flown the white flag from the top of Caxton House, bowing to pressure from the Twitter mob and distancing himself from the DWP’s perfectly reasonable promotional material:

“.. somebody along the way put up what is essentially meant to be an example of the kind of advice… and ended up going out as a quote… it’s quite peculiar and quite wrong and we’ve immediately taken it down and stopped it.. “

He has also hung whoever approved the leaflet out to dry, vowing disciplinary proceedings against someone who was essentially doing their job: helping benefits claimants avoid being sanctioned by using illustrative examples. A victory for the Twitter outrage bus…

IDS: “I’ve Never Needed” Viagra

After George Osborne was asked rather bizarrely if IDS had taken Viagra before the Budget, Iain Dale put it to the man himself on LBC:

“I didn’t no. How can I say, I’ve never needed it. But anyway, I’m not making any further comment.”

Quote of the Day

Ruth Davidson on working with PM Boris

“I have worked with him when he was Foreign Secretary. I will work with whoever the Prime Minister is. I haven’t had a phone call yet to ask me to run his campaign in Scotland. I am not expecting the call. But I will genuinely judge him on the same criteria as I judge any of the candidates.”
