Studying the Form

In between choosing his new favourite political joke and moving into Number 10, in what must be a first, the Prime Minister read out his racing tips at the end of his Today interview.

There was a bit of a wince when he chose “Daring Dream” for those in support of the coalition and  ‘Midnight Fantasy’ for those who think it will collapse. Though clearly chosen for a cheap laugh, Dave might be worth listening to here. He is clearly quite good at picking horses…

UPDATE: Robert Colvile has more:

“The race card suggests that in playing to the gallery, Cameron has betrayed his pledge to be the most environmentally friendly PM in history – for next to ‘Daring Dream’ in the 3.50 at Ayr is the neglected ‘Green Agenda’.”
