Shipley schoolboy stabbed by knifeman meets Prime Minister David Cameron at Number 10

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Jason D'Arcy and dad Lee outside 10 Downing Street Jason D'Arcy and dad Lee outside 10 Downing Street

The Shipley schoolboy stabbed by rampaging knifeman Nathaniel Flynn has been Prime Minister David Cameron’s special guest at the House of Commons.

Jason D’Arcy, now 10, suffered nerve damage after being stabbed through his right arm and still has loss of use and feeling in some fingers. At the time of the nightmare attack Mr Cameron offered words of sympathy to him and his family.

After 26-year-old Nathaniel Flynn pleaded guilty to killing his grandmother Louisa Denby and stabbing Jason, Shipley MP Philip Davies organised a visit to the Houses of Parliament and No 10 Downing Street including a ten-minute chat with the Prime Minister, just back from South Africa.

“It was just amazing, the day went really well and has already done a heck of a lot to boost Jason’s confidence,” said Jason’s dad Lee.

They met with Mr Davies who first took them for a short tour and visit of Number 10 Downing Street. Then it was over to to the Houses of Parliament to watch Prime Minister’s Questions.

MP Mr Davies said he was delighted that Lee and Jason came down to London and that they had so enjoyed their visit. He said: “What Jason went through was shocking, and something that nobody should have to go through let alone a nine-year-old boy."

He added: "I am extremely grateful to the Prime Minister and his staff for making it happen and giving Lee and Jason a day that I hope they will remember forever.”

Nathaniel Flynn, 26, is in custody and due to be sentenced at Bradford Crown Court next week.

Poor lad, now he feels he has no place of safety.
The last place I would take a child under the age of 16 would be near Tory or liberal MP's.

As much as I am anti-Tory, I admire Philip Davies for at least putting the interests of his constituents first. The previous Labour incumbent was only interested in feathering his own nest and that is why Shipley no longer has a Labour MP..

I do not think the inference from Tonybaloni is appropriate. Here we are talking in terms of a very brave eight year old boy who has suffered an horrific ordeal on the back of losing his mother only a year beforehand.

Just as brave as the victims of politicians sexual abuse who have to live with it for the rest of there lives.
Cameron has covered this up in the past. So I think my point is valid.
It's just another photo opportunity he doesn't give a ****.
Meanwhile they will keep arresting pop stars and not MP's.
