IDS To Face Works and Pensions Committee

If you signed the petition I shared demanding Iain Duncan Smith face a Works and Pensions Committee to hold him to account over his fabrication and misleading use of statistics to justify his changes to the benefits systems and the government's increasingly shoddy treatment over the disabled, then you may have already received an email sending you the excellent news that the petition has been successful!

An amazing 105,000 people signed the petition, standing up to say that this was unacceptable and called for action and this week, the petition was delivered to parliament by Jayne Linney and Debbie Sayers.

In three weeks time IDS will face the committee and be forced to explain how his department releases inaccurate and misleading benefit statistics to the media in order to justify his unfair policies.

You can read about it in The Mirror here

So to IDS, I say this....
