David Cameron has for the first time publicly denied allegations made in a biography written by the former Tory donor Lord Ashcroft that he was involved in a bizarre university club ritual with a dead pig’s head.
The prime minister said everybody could see straight through the book published by Ashcroft, and confirmed he was disputing the specific allegation that he put a private part of his anatomy in a dead pig’s mouth at an event of the Piers Gaveston Society when he was a student.
In fact, Cameron says a denial was made a week ago and he has nothing to add to it.
The fact that he is coming out with this, now, suggests that he needed time to do something before he was able to say anything at all. Perhaps there really is a damning photograph and he needed to track it down and ensure nobody could use it against him? Perhaps he had to ensure that the ‘omerta’-style silence on the subject extended to anybody who could possibly have anything to reveal about it?
Perhaps he really didn’t do it but had other concerns to occupy his time?
No. Nobody’s going to be gullible enough to believe that!
