IDS resignation forces ‘one nation’ policies

Two practical outcomes of IDS’s resignation will lead to more spending on poorer voters. With three months still to go until the EU referendum clears the air, the Government feels it needs to tack to the centre to counter IDS’s criticisms. At the same time, the Prime Minister has promoted pro-Remain MPs, who tend to come from the left of the party. So, to some extent at least, despite the continued pressure of austerity, IDS will have succeeded in his stated aim of changing Government policy “from the outside”, after being repeatedly dismissed while in post.
