Thursday 24 September 2015.

Dear Mr Cameron,

You really don’t understand or even care about ordinary people at all do you? Ashcroft petulantly having a go at you, and your reported comments – ‘a little prick, a stab in the back’ – ‘rather summed up my day’, you rich boys having a spat is nothing to the axe you’ve planted in our backs and for which people are paying with their lives and our children go hungry.

It never ceases to amaze me, the crass, arrogant, attitude of the worst of the aristocracy and the wealthy. You can be at one of the most lavish banquets in the UK, waited on hand and foot, never stopping for one moment to consider that those invisible staff, waiting on you, are the very people you condemned to a permanent austerity that will never even touch your life in any way.

As Ashcroft takes his revenge, for spite, for pride, for being scorned, he cares nothing for the country he so wanted a high position in. You can tell exactly what he thinks of this country and us in his spiteful little bitch-fest against you.

Why do you think #piggate was such a phenomenon and something you will never be free of? You’ve never taken the time to get to know us, but had you done so you’d know that it was a response to egregious harm. You and your government crossed the line of decency back in the last parliament, but ordinary people know how to manage, we’re used to it, but you’ve eclipsed anything in modern history since the war in your bestial treatment of the people of this country. Soldiers in the trenches managed by rough good humour and camaraderie, that’s how they survived, how they managed the horrors of trench life. I am sure you’d find it very common and disdain it, but did you know us at all, you’d know it for the survival mechanism it is. And it’s tough.

You might think your spat with Ashcroft is the important issue but you’d be wrong. You will go down in infamy as the prime minister and the pig. Quite how it will be couched hasn’t emerged yet, but make no mistake, you will pay for your contempt and arrogance, you will pay for austerity and the Independent Living Fund and our starving children, you will pay for the lives lost because that pig will live on.

As yet we haven’t found the way to save our NHS, nor Legal Aid, or get a decent education system back without crushing people with debt, or stopping Sanctions and driving people into poverty, homelessness and death, we don’t know how to restore our front line services or human rights or our social safety net, but if you think you can get away with such travesties scot-free, think again. Think pig. May it haunt you for the rest of your life. And if Osborne is quietly queuing up as your replacement, he’ll fare no better. You all may think you are above the law, but the law isn’t the only justice in this land, not by a long way.
