2. Collapsed in giggles after suggesting Nadine Dorries MP might be frustrated and didn’t bother to answer her question (basically his crime there is making me come to Dorries’ defence)
3. Voted for the abortion limit to be lowered to 22 weeks.
4. Is currently backing a deficit plan under which women will suffer from (facts and figures here, or the list gets a little…infinite-ey)
Recent polls have revealed women are swiftly going off the Prime Minister with only 43% of women approving of Cameron. Another YouGov poll found that 1 in 3 women voters thought Cameron to be the greatest male chauvinist of the 3 party leaders. Knowing it must be something he said not something he did ex PR man Cameron has been explaining his side of the story. Which as PM he never gets to do.
What with Sam Cam and her refusal to give interviews ( which I applaud), Dave has had to do his own defending, assuring us that she too uses the people’s prince Michael Winner’s catchphrase “Calm down dear” all the time.
In an interview with Grazia magazine Cameron said; “Samantha does feel quite strongly about it because she often says "calm down dear" to me. We've both seen the commercial. So while I was kicking myself, she didn't really see the issue.”
This, frankly, smacks of the old ‘some of my best friends are gay/black/feminists so I can’t be homophobic/racist/misogynist’ excuse.
As well as taking full responsibility for the PMQ blunders, Cameron has now taken to being flanked by women at PMQs. It’s a tactic usually seen on Prince and 50 Cent photo shoots but what the hey. It just might work with Margot James, Heather Wheeler, Laura Sandys and Anne McIntosh all taking seats behind Cameron during PMQs on the 19th and 26th of last month. Perhaps this is purely so they are poised to give the PM a clip round the ear the next time he cracks out a sexism.
Cameron not off down the boozer
