Duncan Smith warns government risks ‘dividing’ society
Iain Duncan Smith has warned that the government risks dividing society, in his first interview since resigning as work and pensions secretary.
He attacked the “desperate search for savings” focused on benefit payments to people who “don’t vote for us”.
And he told the BBC’s Andrew Marr his “painful” decision was “not personal” against Chancellor George Osborne.
Downing Street said it was sorry to see Iain Duncan Smith go but was determined to help “everyone in our society”.
