LONDON – England – The former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith, who was unceremoniously sacked from his post on Friday, will start a new scheme that he helped set up during his tenure in the Cabinet.
“I have joined the Back-to-Work programme that I started and ran for a couple of years. I will be stacking shelves in my local Poundland shop for £2.23 an hour and gaining valuable work experience for my effort,” Mr Duncan Smith told the Daily Mail.
Prime Minister David Cameron sacked Mr Duncan Smith on Friday because “it just was not working out” he said.
There is still no mention of a replacement for Iain Duncan Smith but the Cabinet post will possibly be filled by the end of this week.
Dispatches from Westminster seem to suggest that Mr Cameron is looking for fresh ministerial talent and not the old Tory guard.
