During Prime Minister's questions yesterday, Luciana Berger, Labour MP for Liverpool Wavertree, urged David Cameron to apologise for what she described as 'grossly offensive' comments about the ongoing question for justice over the Hillsborough disaster.

Cameron is alleged to have compared the Hillsborough families' search for closure to a 'blind man, in a dark room looking for a black cat that isn't there'.

A Downing Street spokeswoman later clarified:

"The Prime Minister regrets if any offence has been caused. He didn't in any way mean any offence. His intention was quite the opposite.

"He was actually expressing his sympathy for how hard it can be to find closure coming to terms with grief."

  1. I was watching this yesterday, he just makes a funny face and doesn't even acknowledge the question.  All he wanted to point out was that it was a Tory govt that did something about the quest for answers.

  2. How low is the labour mp for wavertree stooping trying to score points by accusing Cameron of offensive remarks when they were anything but.
