Prime Minister David Cameron takes a break on the high wires at Creepy Crawlies

AS the eyes of the world were on York for the Tour de France, one corner of the city welcomed another famous face.

In Yorkshire for the Tour de France, which he watched in Leeds, Prime Minister David Cameron took advantage of a weekend in Yorkshire to pay a visit to Creepy Crawlies high wire adventure park.

The PM and family were staying at Sutton Park, home of Samantha Cameron's step-mother and father, and paid their second ever visit to Creepy Crawlies and the high wires at Wired just after lunch on Sunday.

Owner Janice Dunphy said the centre was quiet at the whilst the Grand Depart focused attention on the centre of York.

She said: "I got a call from my manager but I was all the way across town in Bishopthorpe, and it would have taken me ages to get there.

"I know the wires are very safe, but fancy having the Prime Minister on your high wires.

The Prime Minister took on the high wire challenge with his eldest son, and posed for photographs with staff.

Janice added: "He told one of the supervisors, who's Polish, that he had excellent spoken English, and Mark hasn't shut up about it since."

Mr Cameron has visited Creepy Crawlies with his family once before, and in 2009 the then shadow Children, Schools and Families Secretary Michael Gove visited with York outer MP Julian Sturdy.

Suppose it gives him an excuse for time away from the inlaws at Sutton park.

About right level of activity for his intelligence level!

Monkeying about.

Is messing about with wires where he got the idea for the new ‘Emergency’ powers for spying on everybody in this country?

Or was that a direct instruction from the USA to bend over?

The new emergency powers are only the start of a UK version of the Patriot Act by stealth.

Perhaps putting some choice keywords in here may well get the attention of GCHQ, Menwith Hill and other Echelon gathering sites and waste a little bit more of their time whilst they are pointlessly spying on guilty until proven innocent members of the public who are apparently a risk to national security because they dare to have dissent to the establishment!

C4, semtex, bomb, terrorist, Al Queda, Bin Laden, George Bush, MI5, MI6, CIA, NSA, pointless surveillance, communism, revolution, V for Vendetta, peace movement, CND, strategic target, Whitehall, IRA, downing Street, Prime Minister, President, conspiracy, Guy Fawkes a man born too early, David Kelly was silenced, British Royal family, paedophiles in public office left alone, MP’s fiddling expenses, government cover up for Hillsborough, shoot to kill policy, ABC case, Duncan Campbell, the military complex, Fylingdales does not exist! 7/11 inside job, 9/11 inside job, false flag, black ops, Bilderberg, david icke, Carlyle group, weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? More like weapons of mass distraction!

See that that turns up eh!

'Firedrake says...

Plenty more opportunities for satire for others to take up with the headline of 'Prime Minister David Cameron flying high at Creepy Crawlies', never mind what is actually going in the world!

The photo and activity - What a gift to comedy!

All that rope and no-one could be bothered to make a noose.

I knew the Lizard King was in town because the four horsemen of the apocalypse were hanging round in the area. They headed off swiftly thereafter though to aid corpulent banking greed in London and to help the rich tread on the poor.

Cons is the mot juste, my friend. You have clearly fallen for their lies hook line and sinker.

Either that or you are a member of their gang.
