With claims that David Cameron inserted his penis into the mouth of a dead pig during a meeting of a notoriously louche Oxford drinking society on the front of the Daily Mail today, Charlie Brooker had more reason to be freaked out than most.
Team Cameron’s message to British business is to “shut up” — that’s a quote — on support for the European Union until the PM secures a renegotiation. The FT reports (£):
In his biggest foreign speech since the election, David Cameron will today tell press and dignitaries in Singapore that British businesses and the property market must not become a safe haven for “plundered or laundered cash”.
With a speech heralding a new extremism strategy in the wake of the murder of 30 Britons in Tunisia, David Cameron claimed that “failures of integration” had given rise to “people born and raised in this country who don’t really identify with Britain”.
With the Tories continuing to sabre rattle over the future of the BBC, David Cameron seemingly couldn’t resist handing out some free editorial advice when discussing international security on the Today programme earlier:
