Flashman Cameron's put-down of his own MP Douglas Carswell



The exchange as quoted below is from 27:26 to 28:10 in the above video. Also from the record in Hansard is the exchange in the Commons this afternoon, linked here.
Mr Douglas Carswell (Clacton) (Con):
A few weeks—[Interruption.]
Mr Speaker:
Order. Let us have some order in the House. I want to hear Mr Douglas Carswell.
Mr Carswell:
A few weeks ago in this House, I asked the Prime Minister to what extent he believed that the Whitehall machine—the Sir Humphrey factor—was frustrating reform. He assured us that it was not. According to the Financial Times, in Malaysia last week the PM said:
“I can tell you, as Prime Minister, it”—
“Yes Minister”—
“is true to life.”
Can he tell us what has happened to make him change his mind?
The Prime Minister:
There are a few occasions when I think that my hon. Friend does need a bit of a sense of humour.

Douglas Carswell has been writing and complaining of the corruption and undue powers wiothin our Civil Service. Cameron, a bullying product of the same system must be made to provide an answer!

If people like Carswell don't have the self-belief and sense of principle to walk away now then they don't deserved to be in their present position.

Cameron is the EU's man.
