LOOK AT THOSE TICKET BARGAINS! I'LL TAKE TWO!
UKIP, libdems and SNP
but it won't be me
SNP: Knock Knock
Cameron: Oh hi UKIP
SNP: Don't you recognize me?
Cameron: Ohhhh I'm ever so sorry, how's Nick Clegg doing these days?
I forget what football team I support all of the time
that wear that sort of maroon kit though tbf
the guardian have been proper pissing themselves about it. the Cameron/Guardian Milliband/Sun character assassination obsession is tiresome as fuck
It's completely pathetic.
I would forget which football teams I support. Ever.)
He misremembered a lie he'd told to make himself seem "authentic". (Much like that time he met a black man.) Blair did the same shit regarding his massive football fandom.
Admittedly, that the Prime Minister feels he has to pretend to like football probably says more about modern British politics than David Cameron.
'the artic monkeys'. Do they really think it'll make a difference? I'd rather they just say they just pop on a bit of classical or something or 'don't really have time to listen to music' that's ok, I expect you to be busy running the country.
and says a lot about our expectations of politicians (that they lie, that we expect them to lie, and that they know that we expect them to lie)
Miliband's got a geeky obsession with baseball. And he likes cricket too. Doesn't pretend to like football or anything. Fair play. Just the way it should be.
Blair was less of a football fan than any of them. Used to have his occasional programme notes for Newcastle written by Geordie members of the Labour party/press team.
can't possibly cause anyone to take against him? Presumably some mid-table team in League 2, proving he really likes the grass roots game but sure not to cause any real ripples.
Red Sox, I believe.
Surprised he's allowed to have a lack of football allegiance. We had heard he expressed support for Doncaster, I think. Do they even exist as a football team?
And yeah Doncaster Rovers are lower league stalwarts.
His brother was a bit more involved in football. Was on the Sunderland board until they appointed Paulo Di Canio as manager and he resigned because of his previous remarks about fascism.
EM: "That is a good philosophy for politics... I'll use it from now on!"
While some of you middle class indie bellends might not like the acronym, the man on the street loves it, and Ed proved he's one of the people without even being briefed.
how is that a good philosophy for politics
"In the long-run, we're all dead" etc.
just enjoy a chuckle at the posh guy
Every sports and political journalist was pissing themselves over it on Saturday, it's just that their papers chose not to give it much coverage.
It's understandable why it would be so amusing, and it also cuts to the core of the things Cameron will say and do to appeal to people.
You'd have to be trying very hard to find equivalence between this and the way Miliband has been monstered in the right-wing press.
RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIS FACE!
But I'm pretty sure he used to be a lifelong villan due to one of his relatives owning the club in the past.
Which would explain why he is now a lifelong Iron, as his relatives probably owned West Ham too. Stop having a go at the guy, its not his fault his family love buying clubs.
my view is blocked by a concrete pillar
It's all snails and tapas
West Ham there
West Ham every-fucking-where
If this is the biggest gaffe of the election I will be sorely disappointed. But it probably will be, dickless wonders that they are.
yesterday was a bigger gaffe myself. For long-term significance that is.
Further proof that Boris hasn't got the discipline or temperament to be able to handle the demands of the campaign trail.
Hope he shits himself or something.
Boris has escaped scrutiny in the non-internet media during his time as mayor. I think it would shock a lot of people to see the insults he throws and behavior he exhibits on a regular basis at City Hall, and which would see him crash and burn on the national stage.
Like Cameron, he thinks any attempt to question his policies as an unnecessary distraction from his assumed right to rule.
You know that 'letter from 5000 small business owners' that's on the front page of the Telegraph today ? Well that was a spam circular sent out by Karren Brady ...who was made a Tory peer last year to become Baroness Brady
She just happens to be Vice Chair of West Ham
The same West Ham who got gifted the Olympic Stadium as their home venue from next year on
Surely all just a massive coincidence
(I wonder if Cameron signs off his texts to her with LOL xx)
It appears that a couple, or a few of the signatories did not agree to sign up. It doesn't really impact the veracity of the letter.
this is loads more than I have seen
(yet entirely believable)
i guess all you TWITTER people have probably seen this but compare that dickhead to gordon brown <3 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CDiqeVqWMAEdZiu.jpg:large
We all use that new social media thing.
But...in defence of Cameron, it is a long, tiring, exhausting election campaign. 24/7 media coverage, endless interviews and travelling and the need to stay on top of the media cycle and be well briefed about developments and strategy and all the rest of it.
Quite funny how many seem to use it as something to beat Cameron with though.
and you've been working non-stop, and you've got a million things to think about, to try and remember quickly what football team you were advised to pretend you support. Nobody's disputing that.
oh this election is so stressful i don't know if i prefer red or green
those cameras were all over him as he just happened to relax feeding bottles of milk to some lambs...
has anyone made that joke yet, cba to scroll up
I swear I remember seeing an interview years ago when Cameron said he supported "the blues of course!" referring to Chelsea, I've no idea where this Villa shit came from
never turned up to Carrow Road in a Ghana shirt?
that reads really snarky, was meant to be light, ignore <3
it was the fault of however wrote his speech up for the autocue. Maybe they even did it on purpose, although that seems a bit nuts.
I know the fucking Gruffalo/Gruffalos Child/Snail and The Whale etc etc OFF BY HEART (and I've not had to read them for over two years)
What a fucking prick.
