‘Purred like a kitten’ did she, Cameron? That’s no way to discuss the Queen!


Don’t read this on a full stomach or you may lose your lunch. It seems David Cameron has been overheard discussing how he broke the news to Her Majesty, the Queen, that Scotland had voted to remain in the United Kingdom and keep her as their monarch. “She purred down the line,” he said to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Here’s how the Daily Mirror reacted:

    Wee Davey MacCameroon reveals that, at heart, he’s a Scouser who, like me, has trouble separating all those er/ur/air sounds. What he in fact said was she “paired like a kitten” in a clear reference to how the Lib Dems in the Commons are always willing to follow the banker’s voice.

    Even more confirmation, if more were needed, that Cameron is deluded.

    are you sure mike ? the queen would never purr or indeed make any sort of noise ? if she did that would be a first although most unlikely

    sounds to me they got cut off and what Cameron heard was the dialling tone ?

      I’m not the one making the claim, Nick!
      My personal opinion is that Cameron was embellishing what happened, trying to make it sound good. Instead he made himself look like an uncivilised goon.

        This just confirms how he is no gentleman and I think he has definitely shot himself in the foot big style, but then who cares? Hopefully by June next year, he will just be an embarrassing footnote in history!!! Though I do feel sorry for his kids, with the potential bullying they may have to endure because of their foot-in-mouth-diseased father!

    Having to talk to him probably brought on a bout of indigestion, and what he heard was gas.

    Isobel Waby on Twitter make this interesting point: “official secrets he should not discuss state affairs especially about personal conversation with the Queen….”
