People Are Going Absolutely Crazy For This Clip Of An MP Attacking Iain Duncan Smith

Labour MP Glenda Jackson attacked the work and pensions secretary in the Commons for not engaging with the British people.

1. Labour MP Glenda Jackson attacked Iain Duncan Smith earlier this week, claiming he has destroyed the welfare state.

2. In her speech, she said Iain Duncan Smith was responsible for the “destruction of the welfare state and the total and utter incompetence of his department”.

3. She said: “At some point I’m pretty certain he would like to be able to claim that can walk on water – he can’t.”

4. Not long later, someone uploaded and people started to praise Jackson online.

5. She became an idol for thousands overnight.

8. And she even started to garner support from people who don’t even support the party.

Bet even IDS feels like a right turnip after this. I'm no fan of Labour, but go'ed Glenda... http://t.co/kCgz8hdeWx

If Glenda Jackson was leader of Lab, I might consider voting for them!

10. Someone suggested that Ed Miliband should promote Jackson to the front bench.

Labour needs a leader with balls, like Glenda Jackson.

12. But it could all be resolved if she just joined Twitter.

I love Glenda Jackson. So on it, so coherent. Go girl. Wish she was on Twitter
