    Damien is just as bad as crabb for the record there are no conservative mp’s anywhere near a ministerial position that care about the sick and disabled

    i myself have known many mp’s in my time but there all from the old school and none of them ever had a bad word to say about the sick or disabled

    My daughter thou works very closely today with mp’s who she finds very selfish in all areas across the whole house

    The conservatives thou are by far the worst she says and tries to avoid them as much as possible
