Prosecute Ian Duncan Smith

This petition had 49 supporters

Jon Andrewes has been prosecuted for lying about his qualifications on his CV to obtain an executive post with the NHS. Nobody was endangered or lost lives under his watch, a colleague said.  

It has long been known that Ian Duncan Smith lied on his CV, which led to him landing a top government post as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. A number of deaths occurred under his watch, whilst he and his department slashed assistance for ill and disabled claimants. 

Ian Duncan Smith claimed a degree that he did not have. The BBC investigated his claim to have studied a degree at the University of Perugia, an instituion he never attended.  He claimed to have been "educated at Dunchurch College of Management," but his offer later had to admit it merely involved 6 short courses lasting a few days each. 

IDS used his fake qualifications to gain a position that affected the lives, and the life span, of citizens of this country. His lies are at least as damaging as those of Jon Andrewes and the penalty should be as strong and as swift. His connections should not save him from the justice that is meted out to ordinary citizens. 

This petition, therefore, demands the Crown Prosecution Service pursue justice for the citizens of the United Kingdom and prosecute Ian Duncan Smith.
