6 Things That David Cameron Can't Remember

DAVID_CAMERON_MP_dic9636.jpg

David Cameron might just be the most forgetful person in politics. For a man who can almost certainly recite the entire Eton Boating Song while being de-bagged by Boris, he seems to struggle to retain even the most basic information like, erm, the date of the election. In his latest “brain fade” incident Cameron said the general election was on the 9th of May (it's the 7th in case you have a mind like the Dave).

Here are a few other things that the Prime Minister (the man entrusted with the nuclear codes) can’t remember:

1. Which football team he supports

To be fair it must be nice to forget you support ASTON VILLA occasionally. 


2. That he has a daughter

David Cameron

In 2012 Cameron left his eight year old daughter in a pub after having a Sunday drink. Dave probably thought he was dropping her off at boarding school. 


3. That you need a passport to go to another country

David Cameron

In 2013 a policeman had to rush back to No.10 after the PM arrived at Gatwick check in without his passport. Good use of police time that. 


4. How many houses he owns

House

In an interview with Times he was sketchy on the details. Here's the exchange:

So how many properties do you own? “I own a house in North Kensington which you’ve been to and my house in the constituency in Oxfordshire and that is, as far as I know, all I have.”

A house in Cornwall? “No, that is, Samantha used to have a timeshare in South Devon but she doesn’t any more.” And there isn’t a fourth? “I don’t think so – not that I can think of.”


5. That the Prime Minister's red box should not be left unattended on a train while you pop to the buffet car for a bag of Quavers

David Cameron

In 2013 Cameron was on his way to a family wedding and while on the train left his official red box (you know, the one containing secret documents and things) unattended for long enough so that a passenger was able to get a photo of it that was published in The Mirror. 


6. The correct name of a sexual fetish

During PMQ's last December Dave got a little over excited and fumbled his Ed Balls directed zinger. Ouch!
