Cambridge University study suggests that 14-year-olds who spend even an hour a day watching TV or online fall behind peers

  • "El niño sirio estaba bien vestido; bien alimentado. Murió porque sus padres fueron codiciosos con la buena vida en Europa", afirmó en un tuit.
  • Peter Bucklisch ha tenido que retirar la publicación a causa de la presión social.


Un polémico tuit publicado por un diputado del partido UKIP, Peter Bucklitsch, de la corriente euroescéptica y conservadora, ha indignado a muchos de sus compatriotas.

"El niño sirio estaba bien vestido; bien alimentado. Murió porque sus padres fueron codiciosos con la buena vida en Europa. La cola está disparando los costes", afirmaba el tuit que ya ha sido retirado.

Sin embargo, el político llegó a responder a las críticas con otro mensaje en su perfil de Twitter: "Ira irreflexiva predecible. Turquía no es un lugar donde la familia estuviese en peligro. Dejar ese lugar seguro puso a la familia en peligro".

Algunos usuarios han llegado a recordar a Bucklitsch que Amnistía Internacional ha advertido del peligro que corren los ciudadanos sirios en Turquía.
