Has he forgotten that his fellow Oxford graduate and colleague George Osborne began his career as a menial towel-folder in a department store before becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer, with nothing to help him get there apart from his Tory Party membership card and hundreds of years of privilege?
(In all honesty, it would have been better for the UK if Osborne had stayed with the towels. People should stick to what they can do.)
But let’s get it straight: He said overseas students shouldn’t stay with anything less than a graduate job because British people want the menial work and should be trained for it?
Well, there it is, in black and white.
David Cameron thinks you are only good for menial work.
Did you vote for him and his Tories?
Vote for a different political party next time.
David Cameron was accused of attacking Britain’s working class today as he hit out at “menial” jobs.
The Eton-educated millionaire Prime Minister triggered a furious backlash after issuing the jibe in the Commons when he was quizzed about foreign students coming back to the UK for work after they graduate from a British university.
Rejecting SNP calls for a post-study work visa to return, he insisted the existing “world-beating” system allows students to remain in the UK if they have a graduate-level job.
Speaking at Prime Minister’s Questions, he claimed a new post-work study visa would effectively tell overseas students that “it’s OK to stay with a less than graduate job”, adding Britons want this work and should be given the training and skills.
