Jeremy Corbyn responds to the resignation of Iain Duncan Smith

The Labour leader calls upon George Osborne to follow the Work and Pensions Secretary in resigning.

By New Statesman

Jeremy Corbyn has responded to the resignation of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith over disability cuts:

“The resignation of Iain Duncan Smith reveals a Government in disarray and a Chancellor who has lost the credibility to manage the economy in the interests of the majority of our people.

“The Budget has exposed George Osborne’s record of profound unfairness and economic failure. Not only must the cuts to support for disabled people be abandoned, but the Government must change economic course.

“The Chancellor has failed the British people. He should follow the honourable course taken by Iain Duncan Smith and resign.”
