Today David Cameron once again lied to parliament about the bedroom tax during Prime Ministers Questions.
Watch the above recording and just after 15 minutes in response to a question on the bedroom tax Cameron states:
“Obviously what we’ve done is exempt disabled people who need an extra room”
There are no exemptions at all for disabled people in the bedroom tax.
Cameron must surely know this policy by now and it cannot be said that he is just ignorant of the bedroom tax policy. He must have deliberately and knowingly lied and that is the end of it.
No airy-fairy excuses such as he does not know the policy or he was just mistaken or he didn’t know he misled or any other euphemism for a lie; he knowingly and overtly lied when he said a disabled person who needs an extra room is exempt or exempted in the bedroom tax – no such exemptions exist and never have done.
Other Cameron lies at PMQs are here and where by his own mouth he confirms he lied here – I could go on with many more knowing and deliberate lies from his cabinet colleagues especially McVey who is a past master at it. Yet are we are all getting blase about knowing lies from this government?
This is the Prime Minister knowingly and overtly lying here! What the hell does that say for democracy and the political system we all have to live in? Does it take every disabled person in the UK to write to the speaker to have Cameron apologise for this. Would the speaker have the balls to demand Cameron amend the record and apologise to the House?
Every family affected by the bedroom tax and every disabled family in the UK should write to their MP and should email the speaker and get Cameron to apologise to parliament and do so immediately. Anyone fancy setting up a campaign for this on social media? If so let me know and I will gladly sign.
Perhaps you want to tweet him @David_Cameron so that his 522,135 followers know he overtly lied today?
