Oh it's so easily done. You know, you've had a hard week prime-ministering or suffering the stressful life of a prime minister's spouse so you go down to the pub in Cadsden, Buckinghamshire on a Sunday lunchtime. You guzzle a few beers and glasses of white plonk before tucking into plates of best top rump with roasted vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and lashings of gravy. You guffaw with your chums and exchange pleasantries with the bar staff.
Then it's time to go, so hiccuping and loosening one's belt one jumps in one's car and heads home.Later one discovers one has left one's eight year old daughter back at the pub. Below you can see Nancy Cameron - now aged eight - whose privileged parents left her in "The Plough Inn" for half an hour. They had forgotten about the poor little mite.
|"Mummy! Daddy! Where are you?"|
Hand on heart, I can honestly say that as we were raising our two children we never once left either of them in a pub, a restaurant, a public convenience, an airport, a factory, a supermarket, a church, a department store or any other such place. As responsible parents, we had this weird old-fashioned idea that it was our duty to ensure that our kids were safe at all times.
It's easy to see why Cameron and his aristocratic wife tried to keep this news secret. It happened two months ago. This is a politician who purportedly places great store on family values and yet he leaves his kid in a pub! I wonder if the social services in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire have been informed. I think poor little Nancy needs to go on the "at risk" register.
