• Petitioned The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

This petition was delivered to:

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Either sack Iain Duncan Smith or demand his resignation

      Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Iain Duncan Smith must either resign or be sacked from his position as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. This has become necessary as he is refusing to accept the result of the public's Change.org petition challenge (which has at the time of creating this petition 379,000+ signatures) to live on £53 a week as he claimed that he could, for one year.

For a government Minister to ignore such a large public response to a petition, and to attempt to pass it off as "a complete stunt" is unacceptable. It has become apparent that he has deliberately lied to us, his employers, so he must now be penalised in one of the ways stated for this gross misconduct

Either sack Iain Duncan Smith or demand his resignation

Sincerely,

      We seem to be stalling, folks. If there's anyone you haven't asked to sign this petition, please can you get onto them? It's only people pressure that will remove this arrogant, evil creature from his position. If people don't act, nothing will change.

      I'm hoping that this can match the original challenge petition here on Change.org because that would serve to underline how much we want IDS gone. Please share and Tweet this one like it's going out of fashion and let's get it viral! Thanks in advance! 8)

      This man cost me my job in Remploy. He also cost me £000,s when i was made redundant. He made Remploy change our terms of redundancy compared to previous redundancies in Remploy. I did my job well and he took it from me. he is incompetent and nothing is done about him. This must change!

      He is the epitome of evil. God have no mercy on his soul.

      Because I have had to "sign on", due to giving up my job to look after my mother. I HATE the way that people are being labelled by the odious Duncan Smith.

      In light of the latest round of imcompetence realting to the bedroom tax, not only is this person odious and without morals, he is clearly totally incompetent.
