Iain Duncan-Smith's Days on Bread-and-Dripping

In that esteemed organ - The Daily Mail - Iain Duncan-Smith records his days of unemployment. He and his girlfriend-soon-to-be-wife were " in one room with a one-ring gas tatty, carpet threadbare...". That's Iain the ex-Guards officer with an army pension and "Betsy" Freemantle, daughter of the 5th Baron Cottesloe (and former High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire). Eh by gum lad twere tough. No shoes on their feet. Nowt but bread-and-dripping to eat and soup made from his army boots. Aye but we were happy then...

Have you noticed how he loses his rag when he is out of his depth? And poor IDS - thick as two short planks - is often out of his depth.
