Fat and happy: Clearly David Cameron celebrated being elected as Prime Minister for the first time with an extended pie-eating binge.

One thing you can always say about David Cameron – he talks a good fight.

There’s usually no substance behind the rhetoric, though.

His pension is perfectly safe – he has been an MP long enough to have secured the gold standard of UK pensions.

He won’t care about yours.

David Cameron has threatened a Government crackdown on pension providers that are failing to offer all of the freedoms promised by the Conservatives ahead of the general election.

The Prime Minister pledged to keep a “careful eye” on the companies after The Daily Telegraph disclosed that most over-55s were unlikely to be able to access their retirement funds as easily and cheaply as George Osborne, the Chancellor, had promised.

Mr Cameron said that the pensions providers must not use the reforms simply to find “a new way of charging people”.
