Stories from the Tories – Conservative Party Conference 2015
Truly shocking that our Prime Minister thinks Bin Laden’s death was a tragedy. The reality is he doesn’t. Just like JC doesn’t. But that didn’t stop DC leaving out the context in the hope gullible Tories will believe it. Although the actual words spoken by Jeremy have been in the public domain for quite some time. In fact the original interview was back in 2011! But let me put Camerons’ words in the CONTEXT he spoke them………
“And on the subject of protecting our country from terrorism, let me just say this: Thousands of words have been written about the new Labour leader. But you only really need to know one thing: he thinks the death of Osama bin Laden was a “tragedy”. No. A tragedy is nearly 3,000 people murdered one morning in New York. A tragedy is the mums and dads who never came home from work that day. A tragedy is people jumping from the towers after the planes hit. My friends – we cannot let that man inflict his security-threatening, terrorist-sympathising, Britain-hating ideology on the country we love”
Clearly DC on his usual scaremongering warpath. No mention of what CONTEXT Jeremy Corbyn said those words. Here’s the ACTUAL interview……..http://metro.co.uk/2015/08/31/what-jeremy-corbyn-actually-said-about-osama-bin-ladens-death-being-a-tragedy-5369339/
So then a little experiment occurred to me. Let’s see if any Tory MP’s would be so gullible to fall for me being shocked at what Cameron said. Well it went right over Anne-Marie Trevelyans’ head, and Jacob Rees Mogg tried to cover up for the PM……..

David Camerons’ big announcement was removing the requirement for builders to build homes to rent on new estates. This will mean less council homes to rent and allow some landlords to charge even higher rents. Tories have a vested interest as landlords themselves remember! http://news.sky.com/story/1564979/cameron-demands-house-building-crusade
