IAIN Duncan Smith is tipped to win a bet on who can come up with the most idiotic idea at the Tory conference.Loves saying “smart card”
Ministers have set up an office-style sweepstake based on who can think of the most stupid, impractical or pointless policy, with the aim of winning a prize pot of £36.
A Conservative spokesman said: Osborne did well by basically promising to take money away from the hard-working families weve been banging on about for the last four years.
But then Iain played a blinder with smart cards for benefits, which are plagued with problems obvious to a five-year-old, like people just buying stuff and selling it to their mates for cash.
Plus it would involve handing over another vast IT project to a proven fantasist who probably needs Betsy to turn his laptop on for him. That would be phenomenally stupid, so Iain will probably win.
Mind you, Cameron has just said we should teach children to use confusing, obsolete imperial measurements, so were not declaring a winner just yet.
The spokesman said other contenders included Theresa Mays proposal to ban extremists from using the internet, which suffers from the drawback of not being possible.
