Following a recent trip to the north, David Cameron has pledged, if re-elected, he will set up a help-line to comfort people who live in Hull. The support group will be there 24/7 hours a day, he says, to offer condolence to those seriously traumatised by their experience of the city, and offer directions to the nearest taxi or bus stations for those for whom there is still hope.
Cameron says 'My driver took us almost all the way through the city center, so I understand exactly how awful it is to live there.' He says he was inspired by the bravery of the ordinary people he saw, simply getting on with their days as If there weren’t hairy men shouting ‘Go sit on your fingers!’ at nobody in particular, or teenage girls being fingered in street up against a bin whilst their boyfriends texted with their other hand. He says he wants to give something back to these ‘everyday heroes’ and hopes this will be a reasonable start.
