Labour notes Cheltenham visit by ‘apology for a Prime Minister’
“We can well understand if people in Cheltenham feel insulted by Mr Cameron’s appearance at their Literature Festival this weekend,” Labour’s Chair Joanna Hughes says.
“It’s hard to understand what motivates this apology for a prime minister to come here, unless it’s just the desire to make more money.
“Mr Cameron will be remembered for the vicious austerity programme he inflicted on Britain for more than six years as Prime Minister, devastating communities and destroying countless lives.
“After three years ‘chilling’ in his £25,000 writing shed, he still fails to grasp his complete personal responsibility for the national crisis we’re currently struggling through.
“If he allowed himself to focus on this for one moment – that casual and thoughtless decision to call a referendum on EU membership as a way to manage the tensions inside his own Party – he would hang his head in shame and stay away.
“Cheltenham Labour Party notes this brief visit by a former PM,” Joanna concludes, “but our focus is far more on the current actions of his chum from the Bullingdon Club, whose policies now threaten to wreck the country, and so finish the job Mr Cameron began at the start of this decade.”
