I mean is verbal abuse against police officers really a serious national issue?
Nah but he can't exactly say "what's the big deal? it's only a bit of verbal abuse against police officers" either.
It's like grecian says. The Tory party are seen as a bunch of snobs with no respect or understanding for the working classes, and Cameron's desperately trying to "de-toxify the brand".
Don't really get America's political culture either, how anyone could even consider voting for any of the Republican candidates is beyond me.
