Are we all, honestly, so apathetic that we’re willing to let David Cameron get away with this?
It is now clear that he has wanted cruel cutbacks in both police protection and public services ever since he moved into Downing Street – as long as they don’t affect anybody who might possibly vote for him.
This is contemptible behaviour.
Cameron no longer deserves the respect of any UK citizen, on any level – because he has made it perfectly clear that he is not acting in the national interest at all. The only interests on his mind are his own.
It is clear that this philosophy has infected all aspects of Conservative Government policy.
Therefore we should not be demanding his resignation, which we undoubtedly deserve – but that of his entire self-serving government.
We won’t get it, though.
So we’ll have to fight for it.
At least he’s given us all a very large stick with which to beat him.
David Cameron privately lobbied to stop the closure of police stations in his constituency as the force tried to find £60m of savings, the BBC has learnt.
The disclosure has prompted Labour to accuse him of “jaw-dropping hypocrisy”.
Number 10 said Mr Cameron had acted in his capacity as a local MP who believed Thames Valley Police could make savings without affecting front-line services.
This week it emerged Mr Cameron, MP for Witney in Oxfordshire, is involved in a row over cuts with the county council.
The PM had written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he was “disappointed” at proposed cuts to elderly day centres, libraries and museums.
The Tory-run council said it had little choice because its grant had fallen sharply – from £194m a year in 2009/10 to £122m this year.
