Whilst we already knew that David Cameron was partial to iPad games such as Angry Birds, a Number 10 source has laid bare the worrisome portion of the PM’s day that such diversions take up.
Writing in the Telegraph, Fraser Nelson quotes one of Cameron’s advisers as saying the boss spends:
“a crazy, scary amount of time playing Fruit Ninja on his iPad”
As the UK economy slips back in recession and the Eurozone stands on the brink, it’s nice to know that the Prime Minister’s first priority is eviscerating cartoon fruit with a sweep of his finger. It also doesn’t quite match some of what Cameron has said about the job:
“I work extremely hard … it is very hard work.”
Such is his apparent obsession with the device, Number 10 have ordered a custom iPad app on which Dave can view figures on the economy and other key performance indicators from across Whitehall.
But can he beat his high score for long-term youth unemployment?
