If you treat people like fools…

Embedded in David Cameron's speech to the Tory conference this afternoon was this little gem:

But it wasn't just that, it was the cynicism of it. He told us things that he knows he can't do: 'British jobs for British workers' is illegal under EU law. 'Deporting people for gun and knife crime', you can't do that because of the Human Rights Act. I have to say to our Prime Minister, if you treat people like fools, you don't deserve to run the country let alone win an election.
Er… no Mr Cameron. You can't deport people for "gun and knife crime" because of EU directive 2004/58/EC. Even the BBC's Mark Mardell knows that.

Still, you're right on one thing. If you treat people like fools, you don't deserve to run the country let alone win an election.
