Iain Duncan Smith was yesterday (11th Jan) accused of being a “murderer” outside of a South East London Job Centre. Protestors had gathered outside the building in Peckham as the Minister arrived. The angry crowd screamed “murderer” at him.
The attack came on the back of the news that one in ten “fit for work” assessments for disability and sickness benefits had been carried out inadequately.
Later Smith used a copy of the Daily Mail to hide his face, when his car was blocked by angry activists, as police struggled to clear the crowd, who shouted “scumbag” and “murderer of disabled people”.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
