David Cameron cracks cheap joke after being told about ‘desperate’ refugee children

Tim Farron: He may only have seven MPs in his Parliamentary party but he asked a serious question – and David Cameron treated it with contempt.

David Cameron cracked a cheap joke at a rival’s expense after being told about the plight of ‘desperate’ refugee children.

Tim Farron spoke passionately of his visit to the Greek island of Lesvos, where refugee families are stranded after crossing the Mediterranean in precarious rubber dinghies.

But the PM focused on the poll fortunes of the Lib Dem leader, whose party was left with eight MPs after voters punished them for going into Coalition with the Tories.

He smirked: “Let me welcome the honourable gentleman to his place – and it’s good to see such a high turnout of his MPs.”

Mr Cameron … continued, saying he’d refuse to take children from Lesvos.

    There are no words sufficiently evil enough to described this “man”. He is pure evil. He has no heart. I am a firm believer in ‘what comes around goes around’ and I am convinced all the Tories involved in these ‘crimes against humanity’ will get their comeuppance in time! It won’t be soon enough for me though! Evil, pure evil!

    What a compassionate man DC is “not” I await this being’s downfall the sooner the better when are the British public going to wake up to this evil bunch?

    Mp’s who ask questions like what Tim did are daft as he has been told time and time again the prime minister is not taking any kids from the islands

    their is no point for mp’s to keep pressing the prime minister on care/welfare issues as the prime minister over the past 5 does not care on these types of policy

      It’s not a daft question because it encourages the public to view the PR Prime Minister as heartless.

      1. Nick

        sure mike from that angle i agree but i only deal with reality and the reality is he is still in the driving seat by far

        there is no one out their capable of knocking him down much less out his way with words is way Superior to everyone else the same with IDS

        as i say he’s not listening and like on our estate where i live the public aren’t watching and that’s the reality of the uk at this time

      2. Nick

        well maybe not but from my angle he is still a major force and needs to watched like a hawk they all do because the public are very slow to see that labour have changed

        look at it this way you have a top blog how many viewers per week ? how many in the population ? big difference the same with the papers loads of comments but how many when all added up across all blogs and papers the reality is not a lot you could go out on any street and say have you heard of so and so blog and the answer will always be know

        the public themselves are there own worse enemy they see nothing and do nothing and when something effects them only they shout and that’s fare to late

        mp’s also only see half of the full picture if that sometimes’ they act as if there in the know when their not and have to rely on me to fill them in on the wider picture

        the amount of time i spend with their researchers filling them in with the full picture is remarkable and then what do they do with it nothing

        my daughters the same in Westminster briefing certain lords in with what they already should know over morning coffee and come afternoon they’ve forgotten or worse gone to sleep

        i cant win and whats worse this country wont either

    What are we supposed to do? people have been moaning about this lot since they got into power but nothings being done ie have been saying we all need to take to the streets en mass but whenever there is a demonstration hardly anyone turns up. seems pointless really but now that they’ve started attacking the so called hard working families that they’ve said to support maybe just maybe the public will now fight back..
    (ps sorry but I am not a good writer & find it difficult to put my feelings into words)
    Thanks and God bless

    I do not see how we can fit all these poor people into our small country or how we can afford to keep them especially with our own unemployment mounting so rapidly under this government. However any joke about these poor people is a sick one.
