A classic satirical take on Iain Duncan Smith – but under his “reforms”, tens of thousands of people DID starve. Many more committed suicide in despair. He has yet to be brought to justice for causing these deaths.

Iain Duncan Smith, the architect of the Bedroom Tax, Universal Credit, and cut after cut to the state benefits of vulnerable people, tried to attack Labour’s promise to put an end to the cruelty this weekend.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn put him firmly in his place:

I have been waiting years for a political leader to pin the deaths of the innocent on the former Work and Pensions Secretary. It was exhilarating to read this.

But it isn’t enough.

Many thousands of people have died – not just the terminally ill but those who could have led a full, rich and productive life if Mr Duncan Smith had not withheld from them the means of surviving.

We need an undertaking from Labour to investigate the fate of everyone who suffered as a result of that man’s decision to pervert the benefit system into a punishment for being poor.

And then we need to see prosecutions. In the words of Kipling, nothing is ever settled until it is settled right.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
