Dave’s £225 Swimming Trunks From Designer Notting Hill Shop

dave

The Sun has snapped some unflattering pictures of Dave on holiday in Porto Vecchio – their headline across a double page spread reads “Blue Whale Spotted Off Corsica”. Even more eye-catching is the fact that the former PM is wearing a pair of £225 swimming trunks. Guido has found them on the swish Orlebar Brown website, which offers pricey “designer swimwear” and “expertly tailored shorts” for gentlemen of a fuller figure. Cameron chose the “Bulldog” trunks, which feature a print of guests around a swimming pool at the luxury Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc in Antibes:

“Based on the traditional 17 piece pattern of a man’s suit trouser, the Bulldog is not just a swim short – but a short you can swim in. A perfect bridge short, tailored for style, comfort and performance. Wear on and off the beach.”

They come in up to a 41 inch waist and have engraved side fasteners to adjust. Get the look here or at any of Orlebar Brown’s shops in Mayfair, Notting Hill and Chelsea…

Caught on Cam-eron: Nigeria and Afghanistan “Fantastically Corrupt”

The PM tells the Queen:

“We’ve got the leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain. We’ve got Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world.”

What is it with Dave and being caught on mic?

No, Cameron Did Not Answer Panama Claims in the Past

The news that David Cameron’s father ran an offshore fund which avoided paying UK tax is not new – four years ago the Guardian published an almost identical story revealing the existence of the “entirely legal network of offshore investment funds set up in tax havens such as Panama City”. The old Guardian story noted that since Ian Cameron passed away “it is unclear which family member owns them” because offshore investments are not included in the family will. Then, as today, Downing Street would not comment as it was a “private matter for the family”.

The ‘new’ information in the Panama Papers is just finer detail on the old story, though Cameron’s spokesman still refuses to comment on whether the PM has money invested in the fund, because they have “responded to these allegations in the past”. That isn’t true, last time they refused to give an answer. It is unlikely that Dave is a beneficiary – that would have been a risk tantamount to political suicide and we know he has since not exactly been rolling in it, the Camerons have largely been supported by Samantha’s father’s money in recent years. In the unlikely event it does emerge that the PM is the direct beneficiary of offshore money he would find himself in a situation similar to the Icelandic premier – he would have to go. It’s no good pretending he addressed this in the past, Cameron has the chance to clear this up once and for all…

PM National Security Scare

Dave shook hands with what he calls “a threat to the nation’s security” at St Paul’s cathedral today:

Given it was an event to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, Jez could’ve done his top button up. Hopefully he’ll be better dressed for the occasion when he stands at the Cenotaph in November…

Dave Blasts Corbyn’s “Friends” Hamas and Hezbollah

Corbyn caught the Speaker’s eye after Cameron’s statement, but ignored the RAF drone strike and instead asked a question welcoming our “new relationship” with the brutal terror-sponsoring regime in Iran. Dave couldn’t resist a dig at some of Jezza’s “friends“:

“Iran is a still a supporter of terrorist organisations like Hamas and Hezbollah, which I know he describes as friends but I see very much as enemies…”

If you listen carefully, at the end of Jezza’s question you can hear Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke sarcastically heckle: “he’s good“. Will their next exchange be across the despatch box?

RAF Killed British ISIS Terrorists in Syria

Big news from Dave: a RAF Reaper drone killed British jihadis Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin in Raqqah, Syria, in an “entirely lawful… act of self defence“. The first time we have hit them in Syria…

Cameron: UK Will Accept Thousands More Syrian Refugees

“Britain will act with its head and its heart… we will accept thousands more… providing resettlement for thousands more Syrian refugees…”

Downton Dave Gives Lower Honours to the Help

Dave has generously handed out honours to his Downing Street staff, making a long list of his former SpAds CBEs, MBEs or OBEs. But what about the help? The No. 10 gardener and caterers have only been awarded a British Empire Medal, a lower level of honour than their colleagues in the spadocracy:

  • Alison Depass – Catering Assistant, 10 Downing Street. For public service
  • Paul Schooling – Gardener, 10 Downing Street. For public service
  • Marjorie Wallace – Catering Assistant, 10 Downing Street. For public service

Wintour is Coming… To Serve the Beverages

It sounds like Guardian Pol Ed Patrick Wintour enjoyed flying with the PM back from Asia. The Speccie have the inside story from 35,000 feet:

“Wintour – who appeared to be enjoying the champagne on offer – decided the time had come for him to be a trolley dolly and assisted an air hostess by taking the other end of the trolley.

Dave Blasts NUS Over CAGE Jihadi Baddies

Punchy from the PM during his extremism speech this lunchtime:

“I want to say something to the National Union of Students. When you choose to ally yourself with an organisation like CAGE, which called Jihadi John a ‘beautiful young man’ and told people to ‘support the jihad’ in Iraq and Afghanistan, it really does in my opinion shame your organisation”

As Guido revealed in February:

CAGE spokesman Asim Qureshi was filmed at an Islamist rally saying:

“We have no fear.

Dave Struggles With Another Three Letter Acronym Text

Along with Boris (late), Hammond (cold),  Fallon (sober-ish), Soubry (jolly), Hancock (bouncy) and former Aussie PM John Howard, the PM laid it on thick last night at Lynton Crosby’s victory party at the Science Museum.

Taking the stage to do his best Australian accent, Dave was sweary:

“‘Stick to your course and bloody do it…’ That is Lynton in a bloody nutshell.”

The PM also revealed he was struggling with three letter acronyms again, this time curt text messages from his campaign manager about “Paisley pyjamas or whatever”:

“I didn’t have my glasses on and could only see WEF, and I was wondering why he was talking about the World Economic Forum.

Dave Kills Mood at Summer Party With Rant About Surveillance

Dave used last night’s champagne fuelled Tory summer ball to go off on one about terrorists and mass surveillance.

Speaking to a 850 strong crowd at a packed Hurlingham Club, Cameron said he was all for Muslims who call out and condemn terror, but argued that he sees it as his mission to tackle any violent ideology.[…] Read the rest

SKETCH: Ladies Tennis, ISIS and EVEL MacSporrans

Were they tails that the Speaker was wearing, and a waistcoat? Is he finally dressing the part? It’s cruellest trick he’s playing on his critics. He’s turning himself into a decent Speaker. Acting the part, dressing the part, sounding the part.[…] Read the rest

Dave’s Dossier: Deal or No Deal?

EU REFORM

If today’s extensive leak is accurate, this is what the PM is seeking from EU leaders as his renegotiation deal:

  • opt out from ever closer union
  • renewed focus on competitiveness and economic growth
  • fairness between eurozone and non-eurozone members
  • restrictions on EU migrants claiming benefits

So, what do Guido readers think?[…] Read the rest
