EU has been hit by ‘out of control bulldozer’, says Iain Duncan Smith


Here’s a politician who grabs the limelight more for the lies he has told than any factual content of his claims – Iain Duncan Smith.

It seems the man we call RTU (Return to Unit) and SNLR (Services No Longer Required), in tribute to his failed army career, thinks the European Union is starting to come around to Tory thinking on immigration and debt.

Prepare for a torrent of rebuttals.

The crises of mass migration and Greek debt have hit the European Union like an “an out-of-control bulldozer”, forcing its leaders to rethink David Cameron’s call for fundamental reform, the cabinet’s leading Eurosceptic has said.

Iain Duncan Smith, speaking to the Guardian before a Conservative party conference that will see disputes over Cameron’s EU referendum tactics, said the twin crises had changed the debate.

The work and pensions secretary said: “We are getting a better hearing because people are waking up to these things. It is suddenly becoming clear that actually you cannot paper over the cracks and say ‘it’s alright, it’s only the British.’ We still have the crisis over the euro and Greece, and then the rows over Schengen border controls are like nothing I have ever seen. It is massive.”

The two crises had sent “shock waves everywhere”, he said. “Nothing is the same after this thing. The European Union has just been hit by an out-of-control bulldozer that has just gone straight through the middle of them.”

    The photo caption above should say. IDS FINALLY GIVES THE REASON WHY HE IS SO EVIL: “My p***s is this big.”

    Duncan-Smith, a bye-word for corruption and dishonesty. I note that he never talks about “Betsygate”.

    The benefits system has been hit by an out of control bulldozer as well. The compulsive liar and sociopath Ian Smith (his real name). Pots and kettles at least.

    Well. lest we forget it Norman Tebbit thought Iain Duncan Smith was to the right politically to HIS own position! When IDS became leader of the Conservatives Tebbit said something along the lines of: “If you all think I’m right wing wait until you see this fellow.”

    So now Herr Smith is speaking for Europe is he, he thinks he knows what they’re thinking and what’s best for them, what an arrogant little **** he is, I bet Europe think very little of him, if anthingy at all, and what they do think of him will be: Hitler’s got nothing on him!
