Conservative Party activists are about to launch a campaign to name and shame MPs who did not vote for cuts in disability benefits, it has emerged.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, one Tory MP said: “Our cruel policy of hounding the sick and disabled to an early grave was clearly mandated by our general election victories, so it is extremely disappointing to see myself and other parliamentary colleagues being named and shamed for our egregious voting records and excessive expense claims.”
“It’s time for our party to fight back against the treasonous spreading of facts and truths on social media. And that is why some of our nastiest activists will be generating memes of our own, which will be posted on social media, and which will name and shame MPs and public figures who we feel have not done enough to hurt the most vulnerable in society.”
“I am still immensely proud of my record as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and I consider myself to be one of the greatest heroes in British history.”
The former minister added: “We used to be known as ‘the nasty party’, but now we’re just ‘the nazi party’.”
