This 11-year-old boy was left out in the cold by David Cameron because he didn’t understand that the National Health Service in England doesn’t exist to cure the sick; it is there to make money for rich people.
David Cameron wasn’t interested in Ben’s case, which is why he received a form letter – probably written by a flunky – suggesting options that had already been refused.
And when he delivers his letter in person, no doubt he’ll be received very kindly, but the smiles will be false and any promises will be hollow.
Tories don’t like seeing the consequences of their policies.
A disabled boy snubbed by David Cameron over his NHS treatment is taking his campaign to Downing Street.
Ben Baddeley has written to the Prime Minister to say why he feels “confused and let down”.
The cerebral palsy sufferer, 11, had to rely on donations from Mirror readers after his treatments were cancelled due to Tory NHS cuts.
We told how it took him hours to write to Mr Cameron due to his condition.
The PM’s reply came after two weeks – but offered treatment options which had already been ruled out.
His angry parents Amy and Gary claimed Mr Cameron had not checked on Ben’s situation before he made promises which he could not keep.
But they contacted Edward Timpson, Tory MP for Crewe and Nantwich, who has arranged for Ben to travel to London and hand in his letter personally at No 10.
It states: “I am a bit disappointed because you did not answer any of my questions. I really want to know why the NHS can’t help me. I thought it was there to help poorly people like me and all the other children the same as me.
“I am confused because you are our Prime Minister, I thought that meant you are in charge of all the big things in England.”
