This is David Morris: He’d rather suggest that tales of poverty at schools in his constituency are a Momentum-led conspiracy than do anything about it.

The Tories are turning to self-parody, it seems.

One supposes they have to find some sort of excuse for the results of their policies.

I mean, to a Tory, anything is better than actually facing the consequences of their actions.

So David Morris implies that claims of extreme poverty in a school in his constituency are a Momentum-led conspiracy.

And the poverty-stricken pupils of Morecambe get absolutely no help at all.

Conservative MP David Morris has ignited a storm of controversy after openly suggesting that Doctors and Teachers in his Morecambe constituency were lying about the extent of child poverty in the area, and that the claims were simply part of a Momentum-led conspiracy.

A recent ITV investigation went viral on social media after teachers in the area claimed that child poverty was so bad that:

  • They were having to wash pupils’ uniforms as parents could not afford their electricity bills
  • They had witnessed parents passing out in the school hall through malnutrition after missing meals due to lack of money
  • They had to regularly invite parents to join in with breakfast club in school and take them to food banks
  • They had to regularly hand out shoes and coats to pupils whose parents could not afford them

Morecambe’s local Tory MP, David Morris, took to ITV to refute the claims, suggesting that the local Doctors and Teachers who were making the claims were simply part of a Momentum-led smear against him.

Speaking with ITV News, Morris said: “I’ve not got issues with the report that you’ve run, I’m just questioning the validity of it because the reports always come from either Morecambe Bay Primary School, or another Morecambe Bay School in the West End of Morecambe, and Ash Trees Surgery – both have very strong links to Momentum.”
