Liam Byrne MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commenting on Iain Duncan Smith’s interview with the Mail on Sunday today, said:

“Iain Duncan Smith's bizarre outburst is a sure sign of a minister out of touch with the public and losing control of his department.

“This Government has delivered a double dip recession, over a million young people out of work and long term youth unemployment spiralling out of control. The Work and Pensions Secretary should stop moaning about how this mess is being reported and start doing something about it."
