Iain Duncan Smith has been waging a class war on the people of Britain in his role as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. His reforms have cost the lives of dozens of people. His policies are crimes against humanity. Yesterday Class War converged on his jobs fair in Chingford in the hope of catching up with him. Unfortunately he was a coward.
As a number of Class Warriors mingled with corporate stall holders it emerged he’d sneaked in early and given his key note speech to the companies complicit in his sanctions regime. One told me that “he was preaching to the converted” and that he turned up early because “he was expecting some trouble”. We would have given him some.
Some of the local attendees at the job fair had to bring letters with them to avoid getting sanctioned. They had to be ticked off as attending or else their benefits would have been stopped, despite this event being organised not by the local jobcentre but by the local Conservative Party.
When it emerged that he’d been too cowardly to meet with real people willing to challenge his policies, including his Class War Party rival at the next election Marina Pepper, a group moved on to his constituency office to see if he was hiding there. Unfortunately, again he was nowhere to be found.
Here are some pictures of the day out.
A group head to the IDS office to remonstrate.
Marina Pepper finds the lights are on but nobody’s at home.
Quote of the day from Class War’s Ian Bone: “Are you skulking in there Iain?”
We will continue to challenge the rich and powerful in their war against us.
