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.”

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
