Wealthy constituent tells Cameron to "f*** off"

Martin Ivens accompanied David Cameron on a trip through the floods of his Witney constituency. Ivens' account in The Sunday Times includes this gem:

As we wade on Cameron sees a £60,000 BMW caught in the rising waters and instantly wants to offer help.

“Go on, let’s do something useful. Let’s help tow that car,” he says decisively. What better example of community spirit at work untrammelled by the ineffective, interfering state?

Alas, the object of his concern is no hobbit but a troll. “Why don’t you f*** off. You are just making political capital,” says the angry man wading towards us, as if he had long chewed over this sound-bite before spitting it out.

  1. Stop it, stop it! (Pounding carpet with fist, tears of mirth streaming down face). Of course, the ones who really want to tell Dave to eff off are? His own party.
