The only 5 reactions you need to David Hameron calling the PM a greased piglet
When talking about Boris Johnson’s chances of getting his deal through the House of Commons, David Cameron said
“The thing about the greased piglet is that he manages to slip through other people’s hands where mere mortals fail.”
Given that the only things people think of when David Cameron springs to mind are that he called the EU referendum, left his kid in a pub, and was accused of shagging a pig, choosing that phrase seemed a little rasher than necessary.
These reactions are the pick of the litter.
Bringing up pigs when the main thing about you is people think you fucked a pig is the biggest unforced error since his other main thing, calling an unnecessary referendum. https://t.co/XM4oOSXIs0
