Cameron turns the clock back

Issue No. 2304

David Cameron is often accused of wanting to turn the clock back—and now his dinner preferences confirm it.

For a meal with Samantha, Cameron chose Oslo Court, a 1970s themed restaurant where “time has stood still”.

That’s true in more ways than one. Besides the salmon decor, there’s also the fact that menus “for the ladies” don’t have prices on.

The prime minister spends “a crazy, scary amount of time” playing Fruit Ninja on his iPad, an adviser says. It’s a game where you cut up flying fruit with a ninja slash.

Cameron also has a special “management dashboard” app, to govern by gadget. So when he’s done slashing fruit, he can get to work on the welfare state.
