|Mary Cameron and son|
With all the authority of a playground wimp losing the argument and wheeling out a variant of the old chestnut “…and anyway, my bad’s bigger than yours” the prime minister switched gear, changed topic, and tossed out an insult which he knows goes down well with the mob.
Unfortunately (for good taste) he used his 81 year old mum Mary as a prop for the insult he threw at Jeremy Corbyn. Shame, because Jeremy Corbyn was at the time criticising the government’s mistreatment of the NHS, which Mary had also campaigned against .
Mums are well used to being used by their offspring, but hope that a little of what they taught them will bear fruit.
With Mother’s Day almost upon us I’ll drink to that.
God bless mothers everywhere, and the good influence they have.
