Cameron’s office calls police on Bishop trying to deliver letter on poverty (not satire!)

Attempts to call the police by MPs when members of the public present them with petitions or protests against their policies seem increasingly common. I remember another incident when a Tory politician attempted to do something to a group of very respectable pensioners. As for it not being reported in the British press, it sounds like it was so embarrassing that it was deliberately suppressed. This does not explain, though, why the ‘I’ and the Guardian failed to cover it.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s David Cameron)

Amazingly, David Cameron’s constituency office in Witney called the police when the Bishop of Oxford tried to hand in a letter about food poverty signed by church figures.

Anglican priest the Reverend Keith Hebden – who accompanied the Bishop on his visit to Cameron’s office – had this to say about the encounter:

Summoning the police like that illustrates the sense of panic in this government about rising food poverty levels because they are in such denial about this problem.”

Here’s the full story from Al Jazeera:

UK row over Christian values and food poverty

This happened last week. So why has this not been reported in the UK media, I wonder?

Big thanks to Richard Bowyer for the heads up on this.
