Perhaps the quiet man should pipe down

This government is making a habit of walking up dead-end roads.  (I was going to say blind alleys, but that would be a metaphor too far.)  Here is the latest:

Government plans which could reduce state benefits paid to thousands of blind people have sparked a revolt by Liberal Democrat MPs in the latest sign of tension inside the Coalition over cuts.
The Liberal Democrat rebels are demanding a U-turn after it emerged that many blind or partially-sighted people who currently receive disability living allowance (DLA) of up to £120 a week could lose out when it is replaced by a new personal independence payment (PIP) from next April.

Iain Duncan Smith?  Not half as clever as he thinks he is.  Yet another u-turn approaches.  And after that, there will be more bleeding stumps.
