britishroses's insight:

You are a lying, manipulative and deceiving person, how dare you treat us in that manner, you can not insult our intelligence like that. You have mistreated and taken away social security of our most vulnerable the disabled people in our society and now want to take more by taxing their social security and going after their carers menial pay their carers allowance. Austerity is a myth and we are sick and tired of it, if you where half a man you would have the b***s to go after the tax evaders and aggressive avoiders to sort our country out but no you been the bully you are pick on our most vulnerable in society, that speaks volumes about the type of person you are Cameron.
