Thug Cameron voiced ‘bunch of migrants’ slur ON HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY

Point of order: Labour’s Yvette Cooper raised the issue of Cameron’s discriminatory language with Commons speaker John Bercow.

Those who do not learn from the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them – as Eton- and Oxford-educated David Cameron should have known today (January 27) before he voiced his ill-advised derogatory remark about “a bunch of migrants” in Calais.

His comment, relating to people of races foreign to his own, was made on the day we remember the persecution of another ethnic group – the Jews – by Adolf Hitler. Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.

Here are Cameron’s words:

“The idea that those two right honourable gentlemen could stand up to anyone in this regard is laughable.

“Look at the record over the last week. They met with the unions and they gave them flying pickets. They met with the Argentinians and gave them the Falkland islands.

“They met with a bunch of migrants in Calais and they said they could all come to Britain.

“The only people they never stand up for are the British people and hard working tax payers.”

Perhaps Cameron hadn’t noticed the date on which his divisive and discriminatory comments fell. Perhaps he hadn’t been told. Perhaps he didn’t care. Perhaps he is a fan of Hitler and his treatment of certain sections of society. Iain Duncan Smith certainly seems to be.

Whatever the case, Yvette Cooper was absolutely right to raise the issue before Commons speaker John Bercow, even though the response – that the language used was not unparliamentary and Bercow had no power to force Cameron to comment further – was unsatisfactory.

Labour’s refugee policy chief Yvette Cooper has blasted David Cameron’s use of the phrase “a bunch of migrants” – saying its timing on Holocaust Memorial Day was significant.

In a point of order in the Commons, she said: “In that light… it was inappropriate for the Prime Minister to use language referring to the refugee crisis to talk about “a bunch of migrants”.

“Does he [the Speaker] think it would be appropriate for the House to ask the Prime Minister to withdraw that language?”

She says there should be “much more statesmanship like language on the need to build a cross party consensus on such a sensitive issue.”

    Cameron and his cronies are only a whisker away from being Nazis themselves, so Cameron’s nasty divisive sneering insults directed at Jeremy Corbyn are only to be expected.

    David Cameron when all said and done is in the same mold as Donald trump both cut from the same cloth albeit David Cameron is better educated and more careful with his main views of others being made public

    but as Donald trump becomes more popular David Cameron’s true mask will enviably slip

    Or is it that Cameron and his cronies are just a bunch of over privileged half wits with an overweening sense of their superiority over the rest of us who insult us without thinking? Well it’s the tory idea of democracy.

    Cameron has no respect for anyone or anything, he needs to go Asap. The fool is taking Britain down the sespit with him and there won’t be a return.

    The only conclusion I can draw from this comment and others very similar uttered by leading Conservatives, is that they surely have psychopathic tendencies. The lack of empathy for those who share this planet and are in dire situations is simply staggering.

    As we speak one of their toe-rags is busy pressing their black uniforms and polishing their jack boots……this statement probably spat out without thought at least confirms, if needed, just what a newly forming Nazi party looks like.

    Just an off subject thought, perhaps there is an opportunity to Crowdfund a TV add, something on the lines of the Government ‘Anti Smoking’ theme, that illustrates “Every Time You Vote For The Tories, you cut the life of 60,000 sanctioned disabled people to ‘0’. Food for thought. Wheelchair bound and pills come to mind.

    As the pressure builds the tory veneer splits further and we seen the odious bilge beneath. Keep watching and listening folks it will get worse, they can’t help it.

  9. Terry Davies

    have said these comments for years. Bercow is next to being a nazi himself so he is unlikely to ask Cameron to curb his parliamentary language.

    I’m not a Cameron apologist but last night, late, on Newsnight, the host – when interviewing the Greek Immigration Minister – said that the Belgian Government Rep said to the Greeks in talks yesterday – when talking of the crisis – that “if you can’t cope with them, then shove ’em back in the sea.” A Cameronism in the same vein only worse. The criticism of a so-called “EU partner” over the matter has been non-existent by the media. I wonder why? Still on the migrant crisis, and on Holocaust Remembrance Day, I’d like to call out Frau Merkel and the EU Commission as being responsible for every migrant drowning in the Mediterranean during, at least, the past 6 months. I put my thoughts together in a letter to a South West regional daily paper two weeks ago and – surprise, surprise – they utilised it as an opinion piece. The EU are guilty of the most shameful disregard of the fate of migrants trying to reach Europe. I am a techno twerp so I can’t put my letter on-a-stick up onto anything other than an e-mail or I’d send it to you. Since I sent the letter, I’ve found that Christians have been air lifted to safety from Syria in 2015 in large numbers (and much else). Where are today’s investigative journalists?
