Who’s the ‘pathetic cretin’ now, Stewart Jackson?

“What a pathetic cretin”: Stewart Jackson.

Former MP – also former chief of staff to David Davis when he was Brexit Secretary – Stewart Jackson must be wishing he had thought before putting finger to keypad.

He overreacted to a tweet by Remainer Anthony Hobley, referring to his stepson’s disappointment at being unable to participate in the “People’s March” for a second EU referendum vote, that took place on Saturday; he was in hospital after an operation.

Mr Jackson’s tweeted response was: “What a pathetic cretin.”

Oh really? Who, exactly, is the “pathetic cretin” in this situation?

Members of the public took him at face value and panned him for attacking a hospitalised boy – they considered him to be the subject of Mr Jackson’s scorn.

The former MP himself has taken issue with this; he reckons his tweet was aimed at Mr Hobley, who he claimed was irresponsible for “invading a sick child’s privacy” to make a “political point”.

How does he know Mr Hobley wasn’t relating the lad’s actual opinion? He doesn’t.

So let’s get back to the question posed in the headline. Who is the “pathetic cretin” in this story?

Mr Hobley?

His stepson?

Or Mr Jackson?

I think we all know the answer.

    As I understood it he was referring to the picture of the toddler in a push chair covered with a quilt with the Eu flag on its covers parent.

    Jackson is another extremely nasty and ignorant Tory who is squirming to try to escape from the nastiness he has laid bare for the whole nation to see.
