Only a Tory Fool would claim that they could live

on £53, if they had to.

Not an ingenue but a seasoned politician caught out

in the media spotlight by

a radio mike. An old familiar technology

retweeted to incredulous millions

redirected to an online petition for Change.

Over a hundred thousand signed on the first day –

but, seriously people, you don’t think that IDS will give up his

£1,600 per week cabinet minister’s salary

and travel expenses

and his wife’s rented house on daddy’s stately pile

to prove a point?

He’s not that much of a Fool.
