Every day on the news, another story comes up about the Con-Dem government's prejudiced attitudes and practices towards the sick and disabled. The Right 'Honourable' Iain Duncan Smith, MP, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, has shown time and time again his contempt for the sick and disabled. His policies have seen benefits such as Disability Living Allowance and Employment and Support Allowance being denied to the people who are in most need of it. I have read in the last year of terminally ill cancer patients and disabled people in need of 24 hour care be deemed fit to work. Add to that, people have also DIED owing to the stress of having much needed benefits cut. Recently, Iain Duncan Smith also decided to close down Remploy, an organisation geared towards helping disabled people into work, as according to Duncan Smith, all they did was sit around drinking coffee all day. This shows a misguided and ultimately prejudiced view. It's as if to be disabled or ill in the UK today is a crime. It isn't. The attitudes and actions of Iain Duncan Smith are scandalous and it's time he was removed or resigned from his post. Don't give The Quiet Man a Quiet Life until he gets his act together!

      The direct and clear discrimination against people with disabilities and long term sick by this Government and its agents is clearly a purposely instigated breach of Human Rights; with no disability assessment having taken place, the Minister has to resign and condemn his Government for its callous and targeted discrimination.

      My Stress/Anxiety Levels are going through the roof since he started getting ATOS into scrubbing the Sick and Disabled off the Disibility List.

      They want to get rid of 500,000 People like they are a burden rather than seeing them for People that they truly are, Sick and in need of Help.

      This Man has no Moral Conscience and like Cameron needs to undergo a Psychological Assessment.
