Excuse me David Cameron how can it possibly be "SICK" that nurses and doctors want higher wages? You've never known what hard work is in your life. I had huge respect for you and your family when you lost your son due to his condition; but now I don't feel anything for you or your family whatsoever, due to the comments you and your wife have been making.
I disapprove of people like the Camerons quite a lot; especially now more than ever. This is because they are so far up themselves it’s like they own everything. From Cameron's wife saying that she can't afford her children designer wear to buying David shirts from Marks and Spencer's to waking up at 4 in the morning to do phone calls and emails for her business. I'm sorry love that's called work and managing money. That's what life is about to pay for luxuries, the roof over your head, and everything else. Sacrifices have to be made; to be able to continue doing that you can even get good quality in Primark these days for your money's worth. Guess what's that called? SAVING BLOOMING MONEY! And being a member of the working class is a lot harder than you think; you have had all the luxuries you want, it's now time to come back down to level 20 or cloud 20 and start becoming one of us.
As for David Cameron, you'll be interested in what I have found out since he left Downing Street and his MP place in Witney. Since David Cameron resigned as PM on 13th July 2016 after failing to persuade the UK public to remain as part of the EU. Barely two months since his leave as a PM on 12th September 2016, he had then stepped down as an MP for Witney, this goes to show how much the Conservatives are losing it all together. As he had not yet found his next big job, he continued to campaign for the stories during the 2017 general election, is there something wrong with that? You can't continue the whole "I'm still working with the party and government" business if you quit your job.
Yet he has begun writing his memoirs, which he had been promised would secure an £800,000 advance, for what I would like to know, and he is also continuing with conferences and events. I would like to point out that those will come with hefty payments also. Don't you think that's all wrong? You can't just walk into any job and say “I can sell my you my memoirs if I have x amount of money in advance”. People have taken years to get where they are to be able to write something good and interesting. Yet he goes swarming in because he can tell the best story ever and because of his view on things.
Going back to my previous paragraph on David Cameron's horrible choice of words which were, most importantly, insulting to anyone who works in the public sector. So I found out more on why he was claiming that service workers like the nurses who are struggling to get a decent pay rise are being “selfish”, hang on they are working damn hard for what they make. Even with recent events, they still manage to not get paid enough, how can that be selfish? The only selfish people in the world are David Cameron and the rest of the parliament. Yet he gets called “The Millionaire Tory”; within the 7 years he oversaw the austerity when he was a prime minister, but claiming that it was so “uncaring” even to want to lift the cap on the public sector pay.
Yet he just rakes out a vast sums of money from the public speaking and blew it on a £25.000 luxury garden shed; just hang on for a second there Cameron, you're calling the services who put their lives on the line because it's their jobs and not getting paid the money they should “selfish”. You're the one making us stand there or sit there listening to you talking about a load of crap and you go and spend so much on a luxury garden shed. You and your wife need a reality check and to speak to each other clearly, you both aren't on the same wavelength as each other.
