Embarrassed by PM’s poor performance
DAVID Cameron’s appearance on the David Letterman US talk show was a total embarrassment.
This was a much-anticipated visit to form business ties between the US and UK, but Cameron fell flat with a few questions put his way.
Cameron is Eton and Oxford educated, he’s the Prime Minister.
Has he not seen any other Letterman shows to gain knowledge of Letterman’s interview techniques?
Did it not occur to him that there may be some quiz questions?
He didn’t know what the Magna Carta meant or who wrote Rule Britannia.
Granted there is probably a vast majority of UK citizens who don’t know the answers either, but surely the PM should.
