TV News: Prime Minister David Cameron was left speechless on daytime TV show This Morning, after being caught off-guard by an intelligent question.
â€śI didnâ€™t come here for this,â€ť exclaimed a flushed Cameron. â€śI was expecting some cosy questions about dinner party tips or at the very most riding Rebekah Brooksâ€™ horse.â€ť
The question, which concerned the Governmentâ€™s long term economic strategy, was asked by Phillip Schofield. Co-host Holly Willoughby then posed a series of tough follow up questions, ranging from the UKâ€™s place in Europe to foreign policy in the middle east.
â€śI thought you were just going to ask me if Iâ€™d started doing my Christmas shopping yet!â€ť yelped a clearly flustered Cameron. â€śThen you were going to cut to an item with that Gino Ginelli man making shepherdâ€™s pie. You promised!â€ť
â€śThe Prime Minister was not expecting to be asked anything intelligent,â€ť said a Downing Street spokesman. â€śHe had however prepared a list of contemporary music acts in case he was asked about what was on his iPod.â€ť
