This is as low as the Conservative Party can get. It’s active support for the cold-weather deaths of the homeless.

First, Conservative youth movement Activate – also known as “Active Hate” – published the following disgusting tweet:

The response was a huge social media backlash, including the following:

And what was Activate’s response to the criticism? It was… predictable:

No, indeed. But it seems the Tories think their display of contempt for the vulnerable is perfectly acceptable, because Andrew Bridgen doubled down – I believe that’s the correct term, repeating it on the BBC’s Sunday Politics:

This must stop.

Let us see Theresa May apologise for the behaviour of her MP – and disband the vile Activate.

Oh, and before anyone tries to suggest that the tweet, and the remark, are fair comment, let us all remember: The claim that socialists don’t pay for anything themselves is a childish Tory lie. Socialists pay taxes; socialists pay their bills.

It’s Tories who dodge tax – and Tory MPs who get the rest of us to pay their bills by claiming them as expenses.
