UKIP Online: Cameron caught lying at PMQs

Posted www.ukip.org on November 26

bours2-e1404806711180.jpgUKIP Health spokesperson Louise Bours has criticised David Cameron’s response to Mark Reckless first question as a UKIP MP, during Wednesdays PMQs.

She said “Mr Reckless was asking a perfectly sensible question about Medway Hospital. Like all good constituency MPs he was raising an issue that will be of concern to many people in Rochester and Strood”.

She continued “David Cameron’s assertion that UKIP doesn’t believe in the NHS and wants to break it up is a cheap shot, and a downright lie. There is a concerted effort from the established parties to peddle non truths and misinformation about UKIP and the NHS”.

Dear JOHN,

Tony Blair – a global legacy of saving children?

That probably isn’t what he’s known for to most of us. But children’s charity Save the Children have given him an award saying just that. [1]

Miranda, a 38 Degrees member, has started a petition calling on Save the Children to take back the award. She doesn’t think the man who took the UK to war in Iraq should be given an award for services to children.
