Iain Duncan Smith has rejected suggestions that workers should be given a universal basic income during the coronavirus pandemic
And in justifying his decision, IDS has suggested that not enough people in this country have experienced the joyous freedom that crippling debt can bring the individual.
The scheme proposed by Labour leadership candidate Rebecca Long-Bailey was branded “Unaffordable and Impractical” by Iain Duncan Smith
“There is this misconception that really damaging debt brings nothing but stress and anxiety to people’s lives”, the Brother-in-Law of the 6th Baron Cottesloe stated from his country retreat provided by his wife’s brother’s estate, “DWP doctors have found that those feelings are merely primitive hormones released by the body that are actually quite healthy in stimulating the mind and metabolism of your average customer of Universal Credit”
Iain Duncan Smith also went on to add that such a Universal Wage wouldn’t make “any difference to poverty”
“You just can’t go giving money to everyone”, the architect of Universal Credit declared, “Good heavens, free money is the burden of the privileged, those with inherited wealth and individuals living off their wife’s fortune”
“…this [moment in time] would not be the moment for such a massive upheaval of our welfare system.”
Stated the former Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions, “No, the time for massive upheavals were when I was part of the Government plunging people into the familiarity of the benefits system through austerity”.
237,000 people signed an online petition to have Iain Duncan Smith’s 2020 Knighthood reversed
“I often felt I’ve missed out by not having a burdensome mortgage, spiralling credit card debt and bailiffs banging the door down of my family provided home”, the MP for Chingford and Woodgreen lamented, “and I know many other people feel the same. Trust me, this progressive Conservative Government will do everything to ensure this Pandemic crisis will squeeze every penny out of the populous and into the pockets of people who can be trusted with money. Such as Conservative Party donors”
