Is David Cameron Appealing to the Hicks in Britain?

Prime Minister David Cameron

Lie to make points with the ignorant

What other purpose could his insane shot at Oxford serve but to gather the mouth breathing anti-intellectuals in Britain to his side?

British Prime Minister David Cameron made headlines on Monday when he criticized Oxford University for their “disgraceful” minority admissions statistics.  Cameron, who is an Oxford graduate, claimed that only one black person was admitted to the University in the past year.  “We have got to do better than that,” said Cameron at a Q & A session in the North of England.  Oxford responded immediately, calling Cameron’s assertion “incorrect and highly misleading.” According to figures the university provided to the media, the school actually accepted 27 black students between 2009 and 2010. Oxford also stated that only 542 black students received high enough A-level scores to be considered for admission in 2009, and that most black students apply for commonly over-enrolled courses, such as medicine.

Politicians- they’re even greasy and deceptive in other countries.

    Obviously what he said wasn’t intended to be a factual statement

    As somebody pointed out in the British press yesterday David Cameron ought to look at his own party’s record on this issue. There are almost no ethnic minority Conservative MPs and certainly no cabinet ministers apart from Baroness Warsi from the unelected House of Lords. Similarly Prince Charles used to go on about the lack of black people in the armed services, that has improved slightly in recent years but very few of them are officers and he himself has very few ethnic minorities on his own staff.

    Cameron is one of the greasiest politicians we have ever had. He talks about “we are all in this together.” RUBBISH we are NOT in this together. He and his upper class parasites are not in this at all. Cameron would trample over his mother to achieve his ambitions.
    Sorry for the rant, but the very sight of him makes my blood boil. The Labour party are not any better.
