David Cameron Caught On Camera Disrespecting The Queen
David Cameron is expected to call The Queen later today to apologise after being caught on camera disrespecting her. In terms of blunders this was one is impressively bad. The Prime Minister was heard to say ‘she purred down the line’ when talking about the outcome of the vote on Scottish independence.

‘Too many tweets might make a tw*t.’ July 2009
‘I don’t buy the value stuff [bread]… I’ve got a breadmaker which I delight in using and it turns out in all sorts of different ways.’ October 2013
