With hospitals having been told to take a ticket and wait their turn to be closed, Iain Duncan Smith says people misheard him during the referendum campaign.
“I was shocked that people thought I promised to spend shed-loads of cash on the NHS, and open a new hospital each week, we clearly said close. I’m not one to blame others, but I think you’ll find that was the work of Project Fear. Or immigrants. Possibly immigrants working for Project Fear. Look, over there, some brown people. Could have been them.”
Duncan Smith says he was grateful to leave his cabinet post during the referendum campaign, as it gave him a break from lying about poor people and allowed him to focus on lying about foreigners instead.
