Horror! British Prime Minister calls woman "Dear"

Above is the lesbian person whom he called "Dear". I think he deserves a medal for politeness beyond the call of duty.
David Cameron was last night facing accusations of sexism and calls to apologise after he told a shadow minister to ‘calm down, dear’ during Prime Minister’s Questions.

Senior Labour politicians reacted furiously to the throwaway remark – mimicking a car insurance advert starring Michael Winner – which came in response to noisy heckles from frontbencher Angela Eagle.

The party’s deputy leader Harriet Harman accused Mr Cameron of an ‘outdated and sexist attitude to women’ and a senior Labour source said: ‘He should certainly apologise.’

The row blew up after Miss Eagle, Parliament’s most prominent lesbian MP, interjected as the Prime Minister defended the Coalition’s plans to reform the NHS, arguing they were backed even by former Labour MP Howard Stoate, a practising GP.

The Wallasey MP shouted that Dr Stoate stood down at last year’s election, rather than being defeated as the PM claimed.

In response, the Prime Minister told Miss Eagle: ‘Calm down, dear, calm down. Calm down and listen to the doctor.’
