Cameron a Christian???

Today’s Telegraph has an article by Damien Thompson on the death of Ivan Cameron & his (Thompson’s) seemingly shocked view that Ivan’s family loved him!! As a parent who’s second son developed leukaemia and died at 3 1/2, I’m deeply pissed off at this

Thompson finds it striking that “the tragic handicaps that afflicted their little boy did not lessen their joy in his presence” I find nothing remotely striking in this. I don’t remember having met many people either in real life and on social media who don’t feel exactly the same; and I am friends today in both worlds, with adults born with severe disabilities who will make the same claim.

What I find so offensive is this blatant attempt by Thompson, to humanise the man who as PM, has led the most brutal attack on disabled UK people in many years. He shares a front bench with Politicians who laugh and jeer as the life stories and deaths of disabled people are told by the opposition; and he supports a team at the DWP & the Treasury who knowingly are removing the financial lifeline from people who share the same illness as his son. If Cameron indeed held a “truly Christian attitude towards the sanctity of human life” he would not be allowing this.

This has to be the most blatant attempt to remove the tarnish from Cameron’s image I’ve seen to date, and all I can say is remember the expression “you can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter”!

  2. The aristocracy have a long and noble history of locking away or killing the “dodgy” results of their inbreeding so it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if Cameron and his wife had held a pillow over little Ivan’s face to put him out of their misery.

  3. Well I always find the words I am a christian…. but usually indicate someone coming up with an outlandish comment so I think Camoron is definitely following those types of christian leanings personally I am appalled at camorons behaviour against the poor needy and disabled of this country, and his continual claims that he helps hardworking people, but not if they can’t work anymore, it is more like or wells 1984 four legs good two legs better conversion work hard good can’t work then die is his attitude.

  4. Reblogged this on Beastrabban’s Weblog and commented:
    I agree with every word that’s written here. Of course, I actually feel sorry for Cameron for the loss of his disabled son, as I do anyone who’s suffered such a terrible loss. But Jaynelinney is right about the horrendous hypocrisy of the man and his party. Apart from sneering and booing at the accounts of the sufferings of ordinary disabled people and their families, Cameron himself has shown his own double standards when it comes to welfare entitlements. When his son was alive, he claimed the relevant benefit for him. After the death of this poor little mite, he abolished it, so making sure no one else could. So, Cameron does not display the true Christian attitude towards the disabled that he claims.

    This looks like a piece aimed at the Christian Right. Cameron’s under fire from them because of his support for gay marriage. This piece’s presentation of Cameron as someone, who cared deeply about his disabled son, seems intended to reassure right-wing Christian fears about abortion. The Christian right is acutely aware of the history of eugenics legislation, and the way it targeted the unborn. German eugenicists called them ‘lebensunwertigenlebens’ or ‘life unworthy of life. The Nazis even produced a propaganda movie, ‘I Don’t Want To Be Born’ promoting the abortion of disabled children. This seems to be an attempt to appeal to such Conservative Christians by telling them that, although he supported gay marriage, he’s really a loving Christian at heart, who is not going to bring in similar Nazi policies regarding abortion.

    As for the article’s statement that Cameron is somehow special for loving his son despite his disability, this is far from the case. Other people also deeply love their disabled children. A little while ago there were a series of adverts on television appealing for foster parents for Down’s Syndrome Children. My mother remarked about them that there were some people, who preferred fostering kids with this particular disability, because they were so loving. Society is truly blessed to have such people, willing to give a family to these unfortunates.

    In short, this is just a piece of nasty electioneering. If you read between the lines, however, you can see that despite this smiling, virtuous façade, many Conservative Christians in this country are deeply unimpressed with the man the extremely Conservative journalist, Peter Hitchens, calls ‘Mr Slimey’.

      • Empathy isn’t one of Cameron’s strengths (or the rest of the Cabinet/journalists)… Few of us would feel comfortable at using the death of anyone’s child for election posturing, let alone one’s own. Quite apart from a natural horror at something so profound and terrible being used in such a way, there is a lack of imagination as to how the outside observer might be likely to react. However, the Tories think that there is no limit to the stupidity of ordinary people aka the plebs, oiks etc.

  8. I’m severely autistic. I come from a family where, to be different is instant excommunication. I was forced to attend public school where I was told I was “satanic”, “the devil’s daughter”, the “spawn of Satan”, etc., etc.. The other girls were WARNED not to come into contact with me lest I corrupt them (oh, in case you’ve not figured this out – it was a convent. Infested with nuns, it was…).

    When I was 5, I was put into special ed. I had to spend my break/lunchtimes reading Pointless Peter and Inane Jane books. Nothing weird in that, you’ll think, until I tell you that my favourite authors were Anne McCaffrey, John Wyndham, and Tolkien. Yes, you read that correctly. A 5-year-old whose favourite authors write adult Sci-fi being forced to read books she’d finished with at 18m!

    I tried to ‘prove’ myself (my PARENTS sanctioned all this, and NONE of my teachers backed me. I remember coming home from school one day and asking my mother WHY she was forcing me to do this, when she knew damned well I could read because she used to record me reading to her – and that was before I began PLAYGROUP! – and I remember this like it was yesterday “if the teachers say you can’t read, then you can’t read. I’m not a teacher, I’m NOT going to argue with them. Now you are going to go to those lessons, because they’re costing us extra! We’ve paid a year in advance, and we can’t get our money back!”

    I took a book into school, and showed it to Sr. Mary Candida (Sr. Thrush!). She asked me where I’d found it. Evidently “my bookcase” wasn’t the right answer as I got my knuckles smacked with a ruler and had to write “Little girls who tell lies WILL BURN IN HELL!” 1,000 times.

    I remember my mother being called into school. I remember the head calling me a “pathological, inveterate, nasty little fantasist”. My mother denied to the head I could read. AT NO POINT DID SHE BACK ME! NOT ONCE. NOT *EVER*!
    When I got home, they took all the furniture out of my room, including the carpet tiles. I was belted and forced to sleep on the bare floor. They started screaming at me about money again, and about how all this was MY FAULT because I refused to do as I was told! I’d brought it all on myself for not denying I could read!

    The next day, I took my first paracetamol OD. I was 5 years old.

    I used to keep journals and diaries. My mother would routinely come into my room, find them and rip the pages out. NOBODY believed me because my mother would tell everyone I was a liar.

    I spent 10 years in total isolation. Any chance up had of developing social, interpersonal and communication skills was lost. I stopped developing emotionally at 3 years old.

    I’ve been becoming more and more sick now for over 5 years. The NAS won’t support me, social services won’t support me, Mencap won’t support me and, as for my family (I have no friends) – well what you reckon…?! I’ve given up asking “Why SHOULD we support you…?! If you were less difficult/more amenable, and did EXACTLY as you were told we might consider it…” So, not only have I to quit being autistic – I’ve to become a robot!

    I’m now suffering from malnutrition, as I can’t buy my own food, because I’m not well enough, so I have to eat what scraps they leave. I can’t go downstairs until they’re in bed cos I can’t deal with the arguments. I’m trapped in my room from 7am-12midnight.

    My dad’s mum was a staunch royalist. She had a great influence over my parents (that’s why I was forced to attend public school). When I was 4 she made me a little purse embroidered with 11 white sheep – and 1 black one. I still have it somewhere. She must have thought I was stupid. 12 family members… 12 sheep. She didn’t hate anyone else, she only hated me…

    Want to know what accessing the NHS is like for me…?! Imagine trying to break down the Berlin Wall armed only with a nail file. I’ve tried, but I usually end up getting my head kicked in by the plod, that’s after the quack’s told me I’m an attention seeking liar. I’ve got so sick I’ve been forced to attend A&E – can you imagine what that’s like for me…?! And then to be told you’re an attention-seeking liar because you’re autistic (yeah, cos sitting for 8hrs+ in a waiting room full of pissheads and screaming brats, hyped up on Doritos and Coke, is just how I LOVE spending my time – it’s not my idea of hades on Earth at all!).

    I’ve been knocked unconscious by the plod, been spat at, kicked “, punched, had my arms practically ripped out their sockets. Been sectioned under a 136 countless times, several sec 2s, and 3 section 3s! I’ve been dx’d with schizophrenia, bipolar, BPD, dissociative personality disorder, schizoaffective personality disorder, paranoid personality disorder – you name it! Was even told I couldn’t be autistic cos – guess what…?! AUTISM DOESN’T EXIST!!

    If nobody will help me regain my health, could someone PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, *PLEASE*, help me understand *WHY*…?! *WHY* nobody believes me, *WHY* I live with 2 people who couldn’t give a fuck whether I’m alive – or dead!

    Don’t *I* have basic human rights, too…?! Am I not human as they’ve been denied me…?!

    I’m 40 in May. I ain’t gonna make it… I just keep thinking what life would have been like if my parents had valued me more than money and allowed me to leave…?! Why force a very obviously-non-dyslexic kid to take remedial ed…?! Why DENY SHE COULD READ (so, mother, when I was reading to you, I just so happened to GUESS every single word correctly…?! First time, every time, too! What are the chances of *THAT*…?!)

    Tried asking mother once. I received “Why are you STILL dragging that up…?! Let it GO already, will you…?! I forgot about it AGES ago! No WONDER your head is screwed up!”

    HTF can I forget something which has – to all intents and purposes – fucked up my life until the day I die (hopefully that’ll be VERY SOON!)…?! Of COURSE *YOU’VE* forgotten it, YOU BITCH!

    I don’t, can’t – and WILL NEVER – understand this world.

        Hi Sarah,
        I just read your comment, and you sound very distressed and confused. Don’t give up what ever you do. I think you should research ‘The Narcissistic Mother’ ‘The Narcissistic Family’ I think you have suffered being their ‘scapegoat’ .

        Research this, and you may find some answers. There is nothing wrong with your mind, a Narcissistic mother can make her own child mentally ill with the abuse they dish out. Please get strong, you will be amazed when you discover the truth.
