Iain Duncan Smith: Slavery and Narcissism

Iain Duncan Smith Self Aggrandising Narcissist AAV

What follows is from today’s entry in Another Angry Voice, a blog that all of you should be reading along with Vox Political. This analysis of Iain Duncan Smith, after he tried to compare himself with William Wilberforce, the great 19th century anti-slavery campaigner. It is terrific that others are writing about how laughable the man we call RTU has become; I may even find myself relying on what follows as evidence in my forthcoming Freedom of Information tribunal hearing on IB/ESA claimant mortality. Here’s what the Angry Yorkshireman has to say:

Iain Duncan Smith has once again demonstrated how out of touch with reality he is. In an absurdly self-congratulatory speech he compared his “welfare reforms” (which are hopelessly inefficient, economically illiterate, dishonest, unlawful, discriminatory, fraud riddled, punitive, target driven, wasteful, incompetently administered and compassionless) with the abolitionist movement of the 19th Century.

Given that one of Iain Duncan Smith’s favourite welfare policies involves compelling tens of thousands of people (under threat of absolute destitution) to rescind their labour rights and work for free for his corporate mates, it is perhaps possible to believe that Iain Duncan Smith is simply engaging in a spot of “trolling”. However, in my view he isn’t comparing himself to great abolitionists like William Wilberforce and Anthony Ashley-Cooper as some kind of sneering juvenile wind-up, he is clearly delusional enough to actually believe the appalling nonsense that he spouts.

I don’t normally go in for psychological analysis, but Iain Duncan Smith makes an absolutely fascinating case because he is such an unbelievable narcissist. In Iain Duncan Smith’s worldview, he is some kind of infallible superhero and anyone that dares point out his appalling mistakes (which are far too innumerable to count) is to be instantly dismissed as “the enemy”.

    If that was any one without the protection of the PM and armed guards they would be sectioned, declared fit to plead and be tried for mass murder.

    you will need to point it out to him mike face to face otherwise we will never hear the last of it

    a bit like more people are better off today then years ago and before the next election miracles will happen and everything will be on the up guaranteed

    IDS knows exactly what he is doing, he is not out of touch at all, he is just pure evil, a greedy, parasitic sociopath. Just another Hitler. He should be charged with crimes against humanity.

    IDS has ruined thousands of people’s lives and ended some of them and clearly hates disabled people.

    Ian Duncan Smith is quite rare. He’s the only form of malignant cancer protected by the prime minister. Like most malignant diseases only radical surgery will improve the situation. On the Government good news tv channel (used to be our BBC) the DWP were bragging about the number of sickness applicants found fit for work – nearly one million claims were rejected. The bragging went on to say, over a million withdrew their claims. Presumably, because the application is now so arduous and prolonged many will get better and withdraw. One also has to wonder how many were intimidated by the claims process by the deliberately difficult unfair and harsh regime imposed by organisations like Atos. One also wonders how many of these people died as a result of this unfair regime imposed and controlled by a manic Fascist. I for one fervently hope IDS develops some awful illness and needs the help he works so hard to deny to others.

    Understandably his utterly laughable comparison is getting the lions share of the attention from the article. It should be noted that in the rest of his ramblings he went straight into “work will set you free” ramblings , and even used the phrase “will set them free” about his reforms.

    The famous 19th century anti-slave campaigner from Blantyre in Scotland, David Livingston, once wrote:

    “And if my disclosures regarding the terrible Ujijian slavery should lead to the suppression of the East Coast slave trade, I shall regard that as a greater matter by far than the discovery of all the Nile sources together”.

    Now have a look at this letter from Blantyre in Scotland about a modern day form of slavery involving The Salvation Army:


    To make matter worse for the Salvation Army, The Bible is against using workers without wages – see Jeremiah chapter 22, verse 13.

    The Salvation Army is already mired in controversy after they took over from an experienced private charity providing help to victims of people trafficking – in a move that was seen as as cost-cutting exercise:

    There can only be one explanation for Dunk’d in S**t’s behaviour. He’s using some sort of controlled substance. I’ve only met one single person showing this level of insanity and he was a crack-user.

    He is obviously a very mentally deranged dangerous individual, that needs placing in the best place he could be put – HELL. Actually they are all barking mad so send them all to Hell. Why are we letting these sicko’s continue to do what they are doing? They should all be brought to justice sooner than later.
