Labour’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Chingford and Woodgreen, Faiza Shaheen, sparked hilarity on social media after labelling the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, a tw*t, live on the daytime BBC programme, Politics Live.
Responding to a question about what Cameron’s legacy would be, Shaheen said:
“I mean I watch these sorts of interviews and think Eton’s got a lot to answer for!”
“I feel incredibly angry to hear him say that he’s got no regrets about austerity and the cuts that have had huge implications for this country – and in fact there’s good academic studies to show [the cuts] are linked to the Brexit vote; where there were bigger spending cuts around the country there was a higher Brexit vote.”
“And this sense of “oh, well we did the right thing”, when we know that people have suffered [and that] there have been 130,000 lives [lost] connected to that austerity.”
“So, you know, I have to agree with Danny Dyer’s take on this – that he’s a tw*t.”
