Dave and Boris Slam May Plan

Sky reports David Cameron and Boris Johnson met last night, where they agreed Theresa May’s Brexit plan was:

“the worst of both worlds”

Cameron Asked Obama to Say UK Would Be “At Back of the Queue”

Confirmation from ex-White House staffer Ben Rhodes on the Today programme this morning that David Cameron and his aides asked Obama to say Brexit would put the UK “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US. Can’t think why the Remain campaign working with foreign countries to diminish Britain wasn’t popular with voters.

DC in NYC, Not Nice

Oi, Dyer, get yer facts right, mate. David Cameron ain’t “in Nice with his trotters up”. He was in a bar in NYC last night watching the England match.

He was spotted by fellow England fans who started chanting “Davey, Davey, give us a wave!”

UPDATE: Reminder that Danny voted to Leave. Telling the Telegraph “I’m gonna be straight with you; I voted Leave and I’ll tell you why; because I’m f**king sick of politicians doing f**k all.” Unfortunately the current PM is committed to doing f**k all as a matter of policy.

Danny Dyer on Dave

Danny Dyer tells Good Evening Britain that David Cameron is “in Nice with his trotters up” and should be held accountable for Brexit. 

Political Prospects for Pot

William Hague coming out for legalising cannabis is a welcome new development, though he isn’t the first former Tory leader to do so. Back in his groovy WebCameron days David Cameron told Guido “If it can be proved that there are real benefits, medicinal benefits and scientific evidence for it, I would be relaxed about that… my decision would be to licence it if it could be proved to have benefits.” Home Secretary Sajid Javid was convinced by the scientific arguments to grant an exception for Billy Caldwell. What are the prospects for the exception becoming the rule?

The international context is important. With many US states decriminalising medical cannabis it is becoming more acceptable at government level. In Europe the experience of more liberal regimes can be shown to have improved rather than worsened matters. Countries are granting licences for medical cannabis more readily – Malta is introducing legislation to enable it to become the EU’s leading medical cannabis exporter. The spirit of the age is for liberalisation.

The normalising of cannabis use beyond dope smoking teenagers is becoming more widespread. Many people now have the personal experience of an auntie or granny who uses weed to deal with their arthritis pains, never mind those with more serious conditions like MS and cancer. This social development has made the perception of cannabis use less negative.

Domestically we now have a generation of politicians who have used and are familiar with the reality of cannabis use and don’t see it in the demonic terms that non-user politicians of the past might have. With the departure of Paul Dacre from the public stage they also no longer fear a monstering from the Daily Mail if they do speak out in favour of a more liberal, rational policy. Think tanks are now pointing to the tax raising potential of legalised cannabis. The stars are aligning for decriminalisation, though judging by the reported rows in cabinet, one Tory leader stands in the way…

Dave On Hot Mic: “Has The Former Chancellor Been Helpful Tonight?”

Dave was on a morale-boosting visit to CCHQ ahead of the locals last night – while browsing the Evening Standard he was caught on a hot mic by young Tory Robert Langley. The former Prime Minister wondered aloud:

“Has the Chancellor, the former Chancellor, been helpful tonight… oh no, not particularly [laughter]… ah, no way…”

He seemed to enjoy it a little too much…

Tory Power Stances in Full

A lot of talk on Twitter about the Tory ‘power stance’ after Saj’s stride outside the Home Office earlier – and why they do it. As Guido readers have known since 2015, this is why

Security Risk ‘Sugar Baby’ Met Cameron in No.10

The security risk civil servant who offered to sell sex to an undercover Daily Mirror journalist was personally introduced to David Cameron in Downing Street, Guido can reveal. The 20 year-old woman, whose identity Guido has decided not to reveal, was praised by civil service bosses and was a poster girl for the fast track scheme. A source says she visited Number 10 on multiple occasions and met Dave there in 2015. There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing. Does she know his Pret order too?

Million Pound Fraudsters Jailed For 22 Years After Cops Raided David Cameron ID Factory

A gang of fraudsters who who faked up ID cards in a million pound online swindle have been jailed for a total of 22 years. Cops found this driving licence in the name of David Cameron was used to advertise the conmen’s services. How on earth did they get caught?

SamCam on Tinder

Right (of centre) swipers everywhere will surely double take when SamCam pops up on their Tinder. Adverts for her Cefinn fashion range are pinging onto the dating app – a saucy marketing strategy. That awkward moment when you see your mate’s missus on Tinder…

Miriam: Dave “Still Doesn’t Get It”

After Dave’s Davos admission yesterday Mrs Clegg crows on Insta:

“In addition to the serious negative economic consequences for young people in the country, the already obvious loss of international influence by the UK is a disaster, not just a mistake. Really hard to understand how come he still does not get it…”

Think it’s Miriam who still doesn’t get it…

Cameron Ambushing Corbynista’s Coat Costs £300

The “Jeremy Corbyn” love heart coat worn by the Corbynista who ambushed David Cameron at Oxfordshire’s Wilderness Festival costs a mere £300. According to manufacturers IsolatedHeroes, the garment “comes with a detachable Mongolian lambs wool collar.” The woman in the picture is ‘art consultant’ Lucy Edwards, who runs a Soho gallery which sells prints for £800 each. Her Instagram shows her holidaying and hanging out in 5-star hotels. Classic socialist chic…

Cameron on Austerity

David Cameron speaking in Seoul today:

“The opponents of so called austerity couch their arguments in a way that make them sound generous and compassionate. They seek to paint the supporters of sound finances as selfish, or uncaring. The exact reverse is true. Giving up on sound finances isn’t being generous, it’s being selfish: spending money today that you may need tomorrow.”

Cameroons Disagree on DUP

David Cameron tweeted his endorsement of Theresa May’s deal, ordering Tory MPs to get behind the PM:

Seems Dave’s old team didn’t get the memo. Here’s George Osborne’s front page:

Guido can give you Photoshop lessons, George. Meanwhile Cameron’s old comms chief Craig Oliver is also slagging off the arrangement:

Not listening to the boss anymore…

Farage Jumps on Cameron’s Unhelpful “Extreme Brexit” Comment

David Cameron has stuck his tuppence in with a comment that can be described as “unhelpful” at the least. With CCHQ’s strategy being to hoover up UKIP votes, his claim that a big majority would allow May to “stand up to people who want an extreme Brexit either here or in Brussels” is not entirely on message. It also plays into some Brexiteers worries that the formerly Remain-backing May is not as enthusiastic a Leaver as her current public stance would suggest. This is UKIP’s line being reinforced by Dave.

Nigel Farage was quick to jump in:

May tried to rebut the line with a small revision to her standard line:

“No, the reason I called the election is that I think we need the security, the stability for five years of greater certainty to take us through Brexit and beyond.”

Guido suspects Cameron is projecting his hopes, his party is now irreversibly signed up for Brexit. There is however a kernel of truth in the idea that if May gets a big enough majority any Brexit hardliners in her own party can be safely sidelined. Though by rigging selections to exclude the likes of Daniel Hannan and David Campbell-Bannerman CCHQ is pre-empting that problem…

Dave Goes to Vegas

David Cameron is heading to Las Vegas next month to speak at an exclusive conference for hedge fund managers founded by a top ally of President Trump. Corporate delegates will pay up to $7,500-a-ticket to hear the former PM in conversation with the American financier David Rubenstein at the SALT hedge fund congress. Held over three days at the opulent Bellagio – of Ocean’s Eleven fame – Dave will speak for 35 minutes. His fee has not been disclosed…

SALT was founded by Anthony Scaramucci of investment firm SkyBridge Capital. Scaramucci was tipped for a senior Trump administration post after serving in the President’s transition team and donating during last year’s campaign. Dave “putting some hay in the barn“…

Boris and Dave ‘Stood on Chairs’ at Harlem Restaurant

Twitter employee Joanna Geary was in the Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem last night when she bumped into the Foreign Secretary dining with an old friend. She says “I hadn’t seen David until Boris said “‘I suspect you’ll recognise my friend David’ and pointed in his direction”.[…] Read the rest
