All signed. But doubt that the coward will have the guts or integrity to back up his words. Run away IDS. That`s what cowards usually do.

At my distance, it seems to me that sometimes politicians get themselves stupidly trapped into lifestyle challenges like living off £50+ pw. Such challenges, which occasionally crop up, are usually fuelled and then ignited by the tabloid press and last for a few editions and achieve very little. This IDS challenge seems to fall into this category and he is an easy media target. This seems a pity because few will remember that he was a soldier for 6+ years who served with a distinguished record in N Ireland and elsewhere. Living on the edge under very difficult circumstances was bread and butter for soldiers like IDS and so recent challenges about living off ¬£50+ pw would present absolutely no difficulty for him unlike those others who have been recently reported upon who take substantial welfare payments as a lifestyle option.

Sorry, but living of £53 is ridiculous! i recently wrote down everything i spend out on a weekly basis, this includes, rent, council tax, food for me, my partner (who doesn't earn as is looking after our 1 year old) and our baby, fuel expenses, tv license, furniture repayments, car insurance, car tax, gas, electric and water, and found out i had sweet F.A left! i personally, would love to know how he expects to live on £53 per week! and for the record Marjorie, i'm not part of the "workshy brigade", i have been working since i was 15.

So, you've never read his expenses claim or the little scam he did with his wife 'working' for him. I'd say he is 1 a scrounging peasant, and 2 a benefit sucking scum.

No, a far from distinguished record. Most of his career was spent as a bag carrier to a general. IDS is also a proven liar. What you write is an insult to people who have genuinely served their country and who will now suffer from the Tory/LibDem 'reforms'.

The fact that it was a Labour attack and the gentleman in question who complained to IDS that he couldnt afford to live of the £53 per week ACTUALLY receives over ¬£100 per week in benefits as well as his S/E income which IS the ¬£53 per week (at least thats all he declares), he takes home over ¬£150 per week... Lets see if IDS can live off that!!!!
Pointless papers making mountains out of mole hills and circulated by morons!

A NZ MP made a similar claim here a few years ago, claiming she could live on the benefits allowance, and tried it for 6 weeks. Unfortunately she had to stop after just a couple, the poor thing got ill. Inevitably, she used it as proof that its possible - the illness was unfortunate but she couldn't be expected to carry on after all - and made no mention of what the beneficiaries are expected to do when they get ill.
