Will you sign NHS doctor’s petition to stop Iain Duncan Smith receiving knighthood?

He laughed: Remember, IDS laughed at the terror he was causing a rape victim by using the Bedroom Tax to make it too expensive for her to keep a ‘panic room’. The man thrives on terrorising others.

I’ll be signing – will you?

It probably won’t do any good – the Tories tend to find a way to ignore any petitions demanding any activity they don’t want to carry out, no matter how many people sign it.

But it will be a great sign of resistance against Boris Johnson and his fake “people’s government”!

A petition has been launched calling for MP Iain Duncan Smith to be stripped off his knighthood.

More than 30,000 people have already signed the petition against the former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions after it was announced that he has been given a knighthood in the New Year Honours list.

The decision to knight the former Conservative minister has sparked fury amongst his opponents, years after he was criticised for laughing during a Bedroom Tax debate and shedding ‘crocodile tears’ online.

The Chingford and Woodford Green MP is known as the ‘architect’ of Universal Credit , the system of benefits which rolls a number of state payments into one, supposedly simplifying the process.

Around 1.9 million people have been left £1,000 worse off a year and many have been forced onto the streets due to lengthy delays before their first payments and punitive sanctions.

The petition, set up by Dr Mona Kamal Ahmed, a NHS psychiatrist … claims Mr Smith was responsible for “some of the cruellest most extreme welfare reforms this country has ever seen”.

It says that under his leadership, the “UK became the first ever country to face a United Nations enquiry into human rights abuses against disabled people” and that the “suffering and impoverishment” seen in the UK today are a “direct result of the welfare reforms he has implemented”.

In her explanation, Dr Ahmed writes that she has frequently witnessed people diagnosed with chronic mental illness in A&E who have been driven to panic attacks as a result of the anxiety caused by these tests and over the prospect of losing the welfare payments they rely on.

The petition is on the Change.org site, here.

    A knighthood for murder

    I am appalled at this offer of a knighthood for Ian Duncan Smith. Dreadful damage he
    has inflicted on the poor and vulnerable people of this country. He should be stripped of it right away.
