Candidate of the Day: Iain Duncan Smith


Former Tory Leader IDS has led an ambitious welfare reformation programme during his time as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

IDS should be proud of the radical overhaul of the Department under his watch which has tackled the appalling benefits culture 13 years of Labour Government inflicted on Britain.

A voice of conservativism in a cabinet otherwise littered with left wing Cameroons, IDS should be commended for fighting the corner of social conservatism.

If Cameron remains in Number 10 after May, he would be foolish not to give IDS, the most successful and hardworking member of his Cabinet (as well as a Tory grassroots favourite), one of the top jobs in Government.
