Eeh By Gum! Dave’s Yorkshire Gaffe Caught on Tape

David Cameron’s private remarks about people from Yorkshire were caught by the BBC’s microphone:

Cameron (sounds like he’s rehearsing an answer to a question): “I’ll say… delighted there’s been such a strong response. Time to look at all the proposals that have been made. Obviously the more politicians can come together locally to come up with preferred solutions the better. But one way or another…”

Unidentified male: “The fact is there will be some devolution coming to Yorkshire. But what form that takes…”

Cameron: “We just thought people in Yorkshire hated everyone else, we didn’t realise they hated each other so much.”

It’s a good job Yorkshiremen aren’t thin skinned…
