A Conservative MP suggested children who struggle in his constituency are the ‘products of crap parents’.

James Daly was accused of ‘insulting the parenting skills of people in Bury’ after the remark was made in a newspaper piece analysing election prospects for the Greater Manchester town.

The Bury North MP told the i newspaper: ‘When you think about the family, it’s about stability.

‘Most of the kids who struggle in Bury are the products of crap parents and so what do we do to try to address that issue?

‘On the left it would just be we’ll throw money at this and hope something sticks, somebody like me thinks about this more fundamentally.’

Mr Daly was first elected as an MP in the area in 2019.

James Frith, Labour’s prospective candidate for Bury North said Mr Daly’s comments were ‘shocking’ to hear.

He said: ‘It is revealing to see how little James Daly thinks of his own constituents.

‘Rather than insulting the parenting skills of people in Bury, he should look closer to home.

‘Over the last 13 years the Conservatives have failed to grow our economy, protect our public services or provide opportunities for young people in Bury and across the UK.’
