Diddy David Cameron has made much mileage of his music taste over the years.

Many remember him at university as a big Phil Collins fan but he has always been keen to point to his love of the Smiths which even got him scolding from our Johnny Marr a couple of years ago when the guitarist forbade him from liking the Smiths. The idea of the Smiths soundtracking the ‘crazy’ antics of the ‘loveable’ Bullindon Club take some thinking about, but…

In the Manchester Evening News yesterday Cameron was asked about the Smiths on a trip to Cheshire explaining that…

“I went to a very good Morrissey gig at the Wembley Arena many years ago, but I’ve never met him.”

And what would he ask him?

“Heaven knows are you still miserable now? I probably wouldn’t ask him ‘would you like a hamburger?’”

Nope, you probably wouldn’t Dave.

  1. Im not sticking up for Cameron, if someone asks the question that kind of prompts him to give an answer, if he didn’t give an answer the press would have made an even bigger deal over it surely? Just logic
