The "Quiet Man" Housing Cuts IDS Gets His Mansion Free (And Avoids Paying UK Inheritance Tax)

Tory Welfare "Cutter" and UK Inheritance Tax
"Quiet Man" Iain Duncan Smith (IDS)

Tory welfare secretary Iain Duncan Smith - the man slashing housing benefit for hard-up families - is living in a £2million Tudor country pile for FREE.

Unlike worried Britons facing homelessness because of his savage cuts, the former Tory leader, 56, has the run of a palatial home which doesn't cost him a single penny in rent or mortgage.

 (How utterly surprising - not - IDS is in charge of cutting YOUR benefits and Jobseekers allowance and told us recently that we must all get on a bus and find work, because it really is that easy! Remember your JSA will be cut and your housing benefit will be cut by 10% if you, like the other 4 million the Tories intend to have unemployed, cannot find work within the year! Good of the mega filthy rich bastard isn't it?)

The Grade II listed building, complete with swimming pool, tennis court and five acres of gardens, is the ancestral home of his wife Betsy's multimillionaire aristocratic family.

(If we really are "all in this together", they won't mind if I take the kids and pop round to take a dip in their posh pool - will they?)

Not only does the house come free, he doesn't have to worry about his four children paying inheritance tax on it because he and his wife are not technically the owners of the 16th Century home, in Swanbourne, Buckinghamshire.

(TBF, IDS is not the only one in the Tory party who lives virtually "tax free" and not have to pay inheritance tax, neither does the Tory Chancellor and "cut-ter" (sorry I accidentally omitted the 'n') extraordinaire - George Osborne, he and his siblings and father all got together and devised a way to use a loophole so they did not have to pay their proper UK taxes either, clever at this tax dodging these Tories aren't they?)

(Hampstead the home of the mega-rich)

Mr Brooks lives in a stately home in Wistow, Leicestershire, and Conservative activist Mr Knocker, 74, lives in a £650,000 country home near Salisbury, Wilts.

(Whoops naughty naughty Mr IDS, you are using tax loopholes to avoid paying UK tax again! can we do that too? Or will we be prosecuted and imprisoned?)

They [the IDS's] lived in a townhouse in Fulham, south-west London, but sold it for £721,000 in 2002 after moving into the huge ancestral house in Swanbourne.

Mr Duncan Smith commutes between Westminster, Swanbourne and his constituency of Chingford
and Woodford Green on the wealthier fringes of east London, where he rents a flat in a converted house.

(It's alright for some all these big posh homes all over the place, still no doubt IDS and Betsy, will of course turn over a couple of their homes to help house the homeless when the Tory chancellor cuts their housing benefits.
Remember IDS? He was once the Tories leader, he is the "Quiet Man" seems he has been very quiet abut his taxes.
I did not vote for him! Still if you did, I hope you realise that you have been well and truly conned, shafted and that is not really your fault you fell for the confidence tricksters, just don't let them fool you anymore and vow, NEVER, EVER vote Tory again!)

Mrs Duncan Smith's brother is listed on the electoral roll as living at the house, but is understood to spend most of his time at a property 50 miles away in Hampstead, north London.
