George Osborne should follow Iain Duncan Smith's example - Tim Farron

Commenting on Iain Duncan Smith's resignation, Tim Farron has called on George Osborne to follow his example.

 

Tim Farron said:

"It is quite right that Iain Duncan Smith has resigned over this heartless plan to cut disability benefits, but the true mastermind of the changes George Osborne, should also be considering his position.

"It is clear that these cuts had nothing to do with the right level of support for people with disabilities, and everything to do with George Osborne's self imposed spending target. Now his plan has come unstuck he should follow Iain Duncan Smith, for once, and do the decent thing."
