Dear Mr Cameron,

Overheard in McDonald's yesterday:
Adult woman: 'I'll have a happy meal cos I want a toy.'
Friend: 'They're doing the Mario characters.'
Adult woman: 'Ooh, they're nothing like the real thing.'

The circumstances that led me to be present at this 'event' aside, my immediate thought was, 'Shoot me now!' That was a lot more than just a passing flippant thought.

I share this only to highlight that you and your party are not alone in being so cut off from any semblance of reality that people are driven to just give up in the face of madness. This exemplifies, however, the votes you are after with Osborne's beer and bingo budget, the blind and ignorant leading the blind and ignorant. The only differences being that you know that you can get extraordinarily rich on the ignorance of those who are blind enough vote for you and that you despise them.

Similarly, 19 year old asylum Yashika Bageerathi can be separated from her family, imprisoned and deported alone, separated from her family, on Mother's Day, only because of the monumental blindness and ignorance of a whole series of human beings, from the top down, who are utterly divorced from anything resembling humanity or engaging with a humane reality.

Fortunately, those of us who have managed to develop a grown up sense of justice, caring, thoughtfulness and consideration have been calling Air Mauritius, the airline who have been booked to fly Yashika out of the country, to protest, only to receive the satisfying message, 'Lines are busy, please try later.' I am happy to report that I have still not managed to get through.

Yashika is a hard working student and is supported in her devastating circumstances by her school. Yashika's head teacher, Lynne Dawes, accompanied students to the Mauritian High Commission to ask Air Mauritius not to allow Yashika to leave on the flight. On the other hand, Home Secretary, Theresa May, has announced it would not be appropriate to "interfere" with 'the case'. Of course, had Yashika's family been wealthy it is certain that a different response would have been forthcoming from May because that is the kind of puerile, shallow, people you are, for whom money speaks louder than conscience.

People matter, Mr Cameron, we might not matter to you, but we matter and that is why none of today's MPs, with very few exceptions, are fit to hold office.
