More on IDS

MORE ON IDS….OK, I know that most American readers don’t really care about the travails of Iain Duncan Smith, but it looks like he’s going to get the axe this week and I really liked this quote in the Guardian today:

Said one frontbencher: “I’m a supporter of the guy, as loyal as you can get and I’ve stood back for two years, but everyone now judges that, love him or hate him, the irretrievable deed has to be done. We have to say: ‘I’m sorry mate. You’re a nice chap but you just don’t cut it’.”

At least he’s polite about it.
