    Exclamation Iain Duncan Smith living scot in mansion free plus some other information

    While many in this country are going to be clobbered with the New Bedroom tax, suffering with all sorts of cuts to benefits, our foe I.D.S is living a luxury lifestyle in a 2 million mansion scot free including 4 extra bedrooms on top!

    I have also just come across the contract for who is deploying the I.T services for the dwp which also includes handling the Universal Credit.

    and along with 'Accenture' who were awarded the contract, Atos our dreaded friends are also there in partnership, had to be.

    ' Accenture has chosen to partner with Atos based on its strong track record of successfully delivering IT services for DWP, and with a particular focus on delivering secure online citizen self-service applications. As Accenture’s main sub-contractor, Atos will provide the full range of application development and maintenance services. '

    These greedies have to be there to cause misery to anyone they can get their hands on.

    IDS is now quoted in saying " I could live on £53 a Week" I believe, NOT.

    Mr Duncan Smith's current salary gives him £1,581.02 a week or £225 a day after tax. He would have to take a 97 per cent cut in his income if he were to live on the same sum as one man who earns £2,700 a year.

    I have just found out that there is a petition to get IDS live on what he says he can do, £53 a week for one year. If you wish to sign this petition click on the link below :-

    Does he live in cloud cuckoo land?
    Actually I would love to see him try, he has no perception of the cost of living in this day and age let alone the extra costs of coping with disability.

    £5.8m could be saved by not having taxpayer subsidised bars in Westminster. To put it into context that equals:

    7,967 homes paying an average £14pw bedroom tax.
    or
    1,570 people on the single persons JSA.
    or
    The generous Christmas bonus for 580,000 people.
    0r
    1% increase to JSA for 157,096 people.
