Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Who can sit back as our towns and cities are torn apart by violence and be content with the status quo?
I do not believe the picture that some people paint of Scottish towns dependent on welfare. Every time I come here, I meet people who are determined to get into work. Who, with the right help are desperate to get off benefits, support their family and set an example for their children.
Iain Duncan Smith
