We know Iain Duncan Smith didn’t resign over cuts to disability benefit. He clearly wasn’t banking on Nadine Dorries spilling the beans. In actual fact Iain Duncan Smith begged Nadine Dorries to vote in favour of those cuts (he also voted in favour of them) before he resigned claiming it was because of those very same cuts!
She slams Iain Duncan Smith for begging her to vote in favour of the cuts before he resigned because of those same cuts.

Remember the story a couple of months ago about a homeless man – Mark Collins – who helped a desperate young woman when she was stranded in Euston overnight after missing the last train home:
It was a such a touching story, thousands of people donated money – £13,000 to be exact – to help Mark get back on his feet.
But amazingly, Mark still hasn’t seen any of the money yet.
Mainly because a homeless charity working in the area – Safer Streets – recommended the money should be withheld from Mark and given to a homeless charity like themselves instead. On the basis that:

Close your eyes
Shut it out
It’s over for now
Feelings crowd in
Your mind it freezes
Interpret the rest
Try to find
A clear sign
The past exposed
To all who know.
Everyday I try to silence the battlefield roaring in my mind
Any thoughts of positivity so very hard to find.
And when the pain it takes me to the panic on some days
I imagine it all ending-everything just cleaned away.
Well hope it spurs me on now,
I fight! the war goes on,
There’s good people in the world who’ll understand the words of my song.
So to all I say Solidarity!,
I know I’m not alone,
You should remember what I’ve said–
You are also not alone.

On the day of the Hillsborough disaster verdict Nicky Morgan, education secretary with a sideshow job as women and equalities minister, slipped out that she had appointed a new chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
On the scale of wrong decision making this probably trumps her plan to force all schools to become academies,describe budget cuts as a consultation exercise and avoiding live TV coverage of her remarks on child sex abuse at a conference in her Loughborough constituency last year. I will explain why.
The appointment of David Isaac, a millionaire lawyer and equity partner at the global law firm, Pinsent Masons, has been highly controversial.
The two chairs of the Joint Committee of Human Rights and the Women and Equalities Committee – Labour’s Harriet Harman and the Conservative’s Maria Miller – were unable to confirm the appointment because of perceived conflict of interest…
