Iain Duncan Smith stays as welfare chief.
New Cabinet: Iain Duncan Smith stays as welfare chief after rejecting move to justice job.
The BBC reports,
“..he has successfully reinvented himself as a social reform champion who, with his centre-right think tank Centre for Social Justice, has played an influential role in developing Conservative policy on welfare and the “broken society”.
David Cameron reportedly tried to persuade Mr Duncan Smith to move to become Justice Secretary in his September 2012 reshuffle, but Mr Duncan Smith opted to stay with the welfare brief.”
We cannot but admire the BBC’s irony.
Nothing succeeds like failure for the Liberal-Conservative Coalition.
Think: ATOS, Universal Credit, Sanctions, Universal Jobmatch, ‘Help to Work’, Workfare, crooked companies running the worse than useless Work Programme……(there’s plenty more).
