IDS is so guilty.

PENSIONS Secretary Iain Duncan Smith lost his temper on BBC 1's Question Time when he was reminded by panel member Owen Jones of the damage the contract with Atos is causing the most vulnerable in society.

His angry reaction showed to me that he is aware this policy is deeply flawed and the damage he is causing by backing it - but clearly doesn't want to air that view in public.

He also publicly professed to being a member of the Catholic faith.

The hierarchy of the Catholic church should publicly remind Duncan Smith that the policy he is pursuing is in direct opposition to what his faith preaches regarding the poor, the vulnerable and the dispossessed in our society.
