Michael Dugher writes letter to Prime Minister condemning Tories for comments about the North

Today, Labour MP Michael Dugher has written a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, asking him to make a public apology because of a comment made by one of his party members at a recent meeting.

Not the first time Mr Cameron has had to apologise for his staff/unpaid consultants in recent weeks….

Councillor David Shakespeare, who obviously doesn’t have the same mastery over words as the playwright he shares his surname with, said “The north may replace the Romanians in the cherry orchards…. and that may be a good thing.”

Not only is this incredibly rude to everyone living in the North of England, it is also old-fashioned (something that the Conservatives have always been criticised as being).

Dugher said the comments were “out of touch, insensitive and insulting”, referring to the Conservatives as the “same old nasty party.”
