There’s a lot of people out there, particularly in Scotland, firmly of the opinion that David Cameron and the Tories have done their utmost over the past five years to destroy the lives of certain factions of working class people in Britain.
But not only has Cameron been accused of waging a class war, the PM has now been forced to deny that he is at the centre of a curse on some of the UK’s national sporting treasures.
This bizarre theory reared its head again this week when he watched England crash out of the Rugby World Cup to Australia, and is said to date back to the 2012 Wimbledon final where he sat in the stands as Andy Murray lost to Roger Federer.
And speaking in an interview on London-based radio station LBC, the Prime Minister was clearly frustrated with the allegations, replying:
That annoys me so much. That’s nonsense.
Who was Prime Minister this summer when we won the Ashes, thank you very much?
I was PM when we had our best ever haul of Olympic medals.
To be fair, Dave, we had a Labour government when England won the football World Cup in 1966, and both Celtic and Manchester United won the European Cup in ’67 and ’68 – as well as a Labour government in 2003 when England won their only ever Rugby World Cup.
