Trouble With the Mrs

After a long couple of weeks getting it in the neck from almost every angle, it looks like Dave hit the pub with the Mrs. Not just any boozer, an expensive one in Belgravia where the drinks cost eight pounds and dinner won’t leave much change from a hundred. And it seems it didn’t go very well:

Was the slow cooked Castle of Mey beef bavette, truffle potato, spinach & bone marrow jus not up to scratch? Or was it the eight point dip in Dave’s personal approval rating?

    What's Left? says:

    It will not be too long before Sam & Dave will be seeing a pantechnicon arriving at Number 10 ready to collect their belongings.

    Time for a real Tory, not a Blu-Labour wannabee to take over the reins of power

    That’s not actually very much money, you know.

    Dave's one of us says:

    Must’ve been another couple.

    Ordinary Dave would have been at home in “the flat above the shop”, can of Guinness in hand, watching Sky Sports.

    And you know, I think he drank the large one!

    Nice pub that the Pantechnicon, eat there often.

    8 point drop.


    Another 8 or 9 should wake the party up from its stooper.

    If they leave Heathite Cameron in place we will see Unite Len’s stooge Ed Miliband in Downing Street.

    Vote UKIP – the real Conservative Party.

    Well it's a thought says:

    Well shame I’am going out, because I would enjoy kicking the uconned us and Camoron in their none balls, you know the ones they removed when they just got voted in by a cats whisker, seems like the other parties they have no one with balls running them anymore, they all seem to work better with yellow streaks, lies corruption, so change we have none.

    In The Know says:

    Dave is realising he shoul have had a real job afterall!!

  32. 32

    Usually support all your work Guido, BUT slagging off the PM for eating at a posh restaurant with his Wife is just a bit pathetic.

  33. 33
    Cameron is a twat says:

    Don’t forget when Dave’s minimum booze price becomes law everyone will be paying £8 for pint.

    But you don’t seem to realise my doppelganger is alive, well, and running the remnants of the country I set out to destroy!

    But I will add – Cherry never for lacked for a good seeing-to!

    Anyway, must go! – got to see another very Very VERY WEALTHY client!

  35. 35
    Ex Conservative Voter says:

    He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t, really. If he’d rushed over to a Harvester to drink Fosters (God forbid) or Greggs (what the hell is Greggs, anyway?) to eat sausage rolls and show his “I’m one of you common folk” credentials like Militwit did, he’d be slammed as a phony, so why shouldn’t he pop over to his natural environment, an £8 (per pint??) pub?

    And it’s quite insightful; if he’s paying £8 for a drink, no wonder he’s dumbfounded that us commoners complain about £3.50.

    When he visited the North West recently he called in for lunch unannounced at the Bell and Bottle, Newton-With-Scales with his entourage and had a chicken sandwich. It’s one of those chain pubs, and not one I would personally choose to frequent, which just goes to show that David is a ‘man of the people’ in spite of media attempts to portray him otherwise.

  38. 38
    Hang The Bastards says:

    It was because he is acting like a TRECHEROUS ARSEHOLE rather than atrue TORY!

    Get rid of the useless bastard or we will vote UKIP !

  39. 39
    Angry of London says:

    The gay europhile stazi of Sh*tain, openly friendly to TROP but secretly terrified of anything that looks ‘different’ from the cosy occupants of their leafy suburbs or home-county ex-farms. Cameron was a (3rd rate) PR man. The gay stazi represent the only allowed media viewpoint in Sh*tain. Hence, Cameron does his best to please them. Sadly, the rest of us f*_cking hate the lot of it.

    quite right sir!!

    why should the rich need incentivising when ordinary workers have to be bullied and kicked about????

    The real shocking thing about all this is that here is a politician paying for food and drink that isn’t subsidised by us.

  59. 59
    Ex Conservative Voter says:

    It’s generally considered bad form to walk into a pub, take a crap in the bogs and then leave without paying for something. I suspect the chicken sandwich got tossed (uneaten) from his car’s window, as Dave heartily tucked into wild smoked salmon sandwiches (crust removed, natch) and Fortnum & Mason Dundee cake.

    The UK is becoming East Germany circa 1976 says:

    Cameron, like Blair and Brown before him, is merely an errand boy, an order taker, a junior local admin clerk. He like they, is the ‘acceptable’ face, of a very sinister movement and when his usefulness is passed, will be replaced by another smiling robot offering ‘change’ and a ‘better world’. Of course his replacement will change nothing and carry on taking orders and running errands.

    Extradition of undesirables – do you really need to ask?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
