It was on one of my train spotting trips with a couple of friends that I got to 'cab' Mallard on one of it's rare visits to Sheffield Midland.
When I arrived at the loco there was a small queue of about 6 as the word flew around the station.
Definitely the highlight of my train spotting career.

Awesome insight of our British history, before our future British history gets lost, courtesy of the likes of IDS

Fuure British history - seems a contradictory statement and what has IDS got to do with it Undecided

He doesn't like his own people? - Happy to have immigrants here on benefits but his own british people who are vulnerable he'd rather watch suffer.

I admire the job he's doing under difficult circumstances. There's far too many people with their hands out expecting the State to look after them whilst taxpayers pick up the bill. He's beginning to sort it out.
I do know he's a very popular constituency MP and works hard for his constituents.

Yes I agree with this however IDS's way of sorting it out is to also treat the sick and vulnerable like they're part of the problem. If he' such a smart man he should be quite capable of distinguishing between them and acting appropriately to those who are genuine. He can't and that means he's not good at his job.

Tory MPs are always popular with their constituents in Tory areas. I'm afraid your sentence doesn't mean a lot. If he was popular in an area that is known to be politically volatile then I would accept what you say however most high ranking Tory MPs are in politically safe constituencies.
