A video in yesterday’s Guardian told the story of the rise and fall…and rise of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith.
The light-hearted film highlights different points in Duncan Smith’s career with a running commentary from a range of contributors.
From entering Parliament and serving in John Major’s government, to his decision to step down as party leader, the film is an alternative look at the career of one of the most recognisable faces in the Conservative Party.
He is back in the heart of frontline politics in arguably one of the most demanding jobs heading a department which sees him once again regularly in the limelight, and now in the firing line due to child benefits cuts and the introduction of universal benefits.
