    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".

    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."

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

    Glenda Jackson is an incredible woman.

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