David Cameron told to "shut up" on telly, then ripped to shreds on Twitter

The British PM appeared on the Andrew Marr show this morning and spoke about the Nigerian kidnappings.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTER David Cameron appeared on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show this morning.

He talked about Europe, about elections and about various stories covered in the Sunday papers, joining CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour and journalist David Aaronovitch for the review.

Speaking about the Boko Harem kidnappings in Nigeria  Cameron said that Britain “stands ready to do” anything it can to help and that a team from Westminster has travelled to Nigeria to offer help.

We can’t just pile in and do whatever we’d like. It’s immensely complicated.

Amanour then mentioned the Bring Back Our Girls campaign, and invited Cameron to hold up a piece of paper with the #Bring Back Our Girls hashtag.

The move has been widely criticised on social media this afternoon, with frustration about the situation evident.

Then, at the end of the show host Andrew Marr abruptly told the PM to “shut up” as they had run out of time.
