Dear AA

There should be a ban on the use of dead and sick children in political debate. When Michael Gove described another panellist's attack on the Tories' plans for NHS as cheap he showed just how out of touch he and his like are. What  is cheap is to bring into the argument his own son's life-threatening illness, thereby alluding to David Cameron's personal loss of a child.  No panellist can take that up without risking the audience baying at their assumed insensitivity.

And why he is on Any Questions anyway? He is an intellectual lightweight for all his Oxford education.
