A club part-owned by David Cameron and linked to binge drinking attempted to open its doors to children under the age of 16After we highlighted the brazen hypocrisy of the prime minister’s speech on alcohol, research by Political Scrapbook has uncovered official documents which show his company attempting to open the doors of a central London premises to children.
