It’s all getting a bit rough for David Cameron.

It seems the public relations-oriented PM wasn’t feeling up to the task of dealing with the press after he had to cut short his luxury Lanzarote holiday to deal with the threatened collapse of the UK steel industry.

Coming on top of the Omnishambles II Budget which led to a series of embarrassing climbdowns, embittered by the civil war over Europe within his own political party, and with government policy over schools and health in meltdown, it seems Cameron is feeling the heat more – now that he has come back from the sun.

Alternatively, he has always considered the press pack to be a gang of oiks and he was merely revealing that sentiment in an unguarded moment. You choose.

Grumpy David Cameron lost his rag and launched an astonishing attack on Britain’s media during a bad-tempered, red-faced tirade.

The Prime Minister lashed out at as he denied suggestions he had taken his eye off the ball because of the EU referendum.

“I don’t accept the premise of your question for one moment,” he snapped.

Mr Cameron then bizarrely accused reporters of “setting each others’ hair on fire”.

Railing against the Press, he went on: “I think you all spend too much time reading each others’ newspapers. I would avoid.”

His attack intensified as he was forced to defend Brexit -backing Cabinet Ministers who warned the Government’s flagship minimum wage hike will fuel a surge in migration.

“We said there was going to be a clear Government line on Europe, which there is, and ministers are able to depart from it and make their arguments in their own way,” Mr Cameron said.

“The world hasn’t stopped turning, the Government hasn’t stopped operating.

“You all go around setting each others’ hair on fire and getting very excited about this but it’s all a lot of processology.

“I can’t see what the issue is.

“You have got a Government with a packed programme, delivering that programme – but at the same time we’re having a very important debate about Europe.”

Asked about his thinly-veiled attack on top Tory Boris Johnson over his decision to back Brexit, the stressed PM claimed: “When? I don’t think the words ‘Boris Johnson’ passed my lips.”

Mr Cameron’s surprise attack came less than 48 hours after he returned from a sun-soaked family holiday in Lanzarote.

    Dave turns red faced and stamps his feet when he doesn’t get his own way, in 15 years time when it’s revealed that he actually wanted to get out of Europe and has gained considerably by it at the expense of thousands, people may well ask the question of why we didn’t see a red faced foot stamping Dave on the “important debate” of Europe.

  2. Terry Davies

    good news Cameron is getting his come uppance.
    his lies are ironically unravelled by the tory controlled media. Priceless !!!

  3. Michael Broadhurst

    he should happy he can have a holiday,many people cannot due to his and his government’s policies.people on low wages,benefits and the obscene zero hours
    contracts.this govt is fast making this country a third world country.they all ought to be ashamed of themselves.

  4. Michael Broadhurst

    all self inflicted crisis’s,because they dont listen to people,it’s all a big game to them.

  5. Terry Roll

    Cameron needs to be careful – he’s biting the hand that feeds by having a go at the press. With any luck they’ll turn and start reporting properly!

  6. Joan Edington

    I wish there was a link to this interview. I would love to see the shiny-faced one really glow.

    Aww, diddums for Camoron, the pressure finally getting to him, good, if he can’t handle it anymore then I suggest he get his useless arse out of number 10 now!

  8. Brian

    It seems there is a limit to the spin the media right can invent, when the facts are apparent.

  9. Tim

    Once again Cameron as proven just how unfit he is to be the PM? dodgy Dave needs to face the music after warning people that tax avoidance is criminal… so just like his father and his chum Osborne i wonder who else he knows!!
