After calling Britain "a Christian country" in his Christmas speech, Prime Minister David Cameron is being mocked on social media with the hashtag #YouAintNoChristianBruv. The hashtag is a play on "you ain't no Muslim, bruv" – used to condemn the actions of the Leytonstone Tube attacker.

In his speech, Cameron said "As a Christian country, we must remember what his birth represents: peace, mercy, goodwill and, above all, hope. I believe that we should also reflect on the fact that it is because of these important religious roots and Christian values that Britain has been such a successful home to people of all faiths and none."

According to the last UK census, around 60% of British people consider themselves Christian.

Twitter users who considered Cameron's comments to be hypocritical took to social media to show their displeasure. Most commented on this year's controversies and levels of inequality under the Conservative government.
