Ooops! He's done it again . . . . .

Tory leader David Cameron was on Tyneside yesterday (09.01.09) fielding questions from the public>

One member of the audience complained of the huge differences between services in the North East and Scotland.
She complained that free prescriptions, university tuition and care for the elderly in England should be a priority issue for any Cameron Government.
Mr Cameron responded: “I don’t want to do anything that will encourage a sense of English nationalism and distance between the two countries.”

Can you please tell me David, why it is perfectly alright to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish but to excercise the same celebration of England and all things English is not to be encouraged?

Why, because I am a resident in England, should I be expected to quietly put up with being a second class citizen within the United Kingdom? You are quick to condemn the lack of democracy in other countries but it seems you are only too willing to turn a blind eye to the democratic inequality that is taking place in your own back yard.

Please do not forget that the majority of seats the Conservative Party gained at the last general election it did so with votes from English constituents.
