When the Prime Minister was spotted on the big screen at the Aquatics Centre the capacity crowd began loudly booing
The Government won double Paralympic Gold for unpopularity tonight with David Cameron and George Osborne both being booed.
The hapless pair hoped being seen at the London Paralympics would boost their popularity.
But when the Prime Minister was spotted on the big screen at the Aquatics Centre the capacity crowd began loudly booing.
He looked taken a back and, moments later, he presented British teenager Ellie Simmonds with her second gold medal.
Just a few hours later Chancellor of the Exchequer Osborne received the same treatment.
It happened when he appeared on the big screen before a medal presentation in front of a 80,000-strong crowd in the Olympic Stadium.
Osborne gave a nervous laugh as the boos rang out around the packed arena and looked sheepish as he gave gold to Tunisia’s T38 400m champion Mohamed Farhat Chida.
The Government has come under fire from disabled rights groups for awarding a contract to assess “fit for work” assessments to Paralympic sponsor Atos.
A series of rallies have been staged by activists in the past week in protest at the tests which they say are ‘damaging and distressing.’
