David Cameron Pretended To Go Shopping Like A Normal Human Being
Time was, famous or powerful people had to pass the infamous ‘price of a pint of milk’ test to show that they were still in touch with us underlings, but in the days of social media and the photo op, it’s not quite enough to rest on your PR’s ‘I’m normal’ briefing. Now, you have to go out and PERFORM (like a monkey).
So, obviously, in times of economic hardship, where most MPs are expensing their caviar, champagne, and call girls, the Prime Minister needs to get out there and show that he understands our daily, monotonous struggles, cause he’s a top bloke, yeah?
Basically, it’s time for David Cameron to lug a basket round Asda.

And, naturally, the jokes came rolling in.
"Does this look normal? Shall I bother put anything in the basket?" "No, you're fine" pic.twitter.com/LzBw6DTsAG

Now, we don’t know about you, but we think Davo looks happy as a severed pigs head in a boys club initiation ceremony to be strolling up and down the aisles like us plebs.

Also, can we talk about how David Cameron managed to listen to One Direction’s Drag Me Down without whipping out a single dance move!?
