The most dangerous terrorist striking in the United Kingdom at the moment is Iain Duncan Smith.
His Department for Work and Pensions strikes fear into the long-term sick and disabled, and has set obstacles against them claiming the state benefits that are due to them. The result is, all-too-often, that they are denied the money they need to survive.
