A Tweet From A Left-Wing Blogger About Cameron's 'Dead Son' Is Causing Uproar
Here's the tweet:
Since being tweeted on Sunday the message, sent as part of the viral #CameronMustGo meme that begun trending on Twitter last week, has received a slew of angry responses.
Because he uses stories about his dead son as misty-eyed rhetoric to legitimise selling our NHS to his friends: #CameronMustGo- Jack Monroe (@MsJackMonroe) November 23, 2014
In his Conservative Party conference speech in September Cameron expressed his anger at those who seek to "frighten those who are relying on the NHS" by suggesting that he would put the health service at risk. Dr Sarah Wollaston, Conservative Member of Parliament for Totnes, also expressed her anger at the comments.
The Daily Mail reports that a number of other Conservative MPs have spoken out against the tweet including Andrew Rosindell, Tory MP for Romford, who is quoted as saying:"This is thoroughly unpleasant and distasteful. David and Samantha's tragic loss of their son has never been used to justify any Government policy. These comments are deeply shocking and will cause enormous hurt. They should be withdrawn immediately."
