Home truths

When the BBC's James Lansdale was invited to interview David Cameron in and around the family home in the Cotswolds, the results were always going to be excruciating to watch. But what - other than that he won't stand for a third term - did we learn? That he cheers on his son on the touchline of the football pitch like someone who's never watched a game in their life. That he's not above a bit of Carry On-style innuendo in the butchers (surely "I like the thighs, because they're very juicy" must have been a knowing comment?). And that his daughter feels so strongly about Jeremy Clarkson's treatment by the BBC that she's threatened to go on hunger strike until he's reinstated. If you can think of a more noble and honourable cause for which to go on hunger strike, let me know. I'm sure I can't.
