1) David Cameron dies at the end of the novel.
Or at least his favourite character in Game of Thrones does. Pressed on who he prefers in the fantasy epic, the Prime Minister picked Ned Stark, the doomed Lord of Winterfell. Despite being the star turn of both the book and the first season, he was unceremoniously bumped off and political power passed to a weird little kid who no-one much cared for. As so goes the Song of Ice and Fire, so goes the nation?
2) It’s not just Ed Miliband who has two kitchens.
The Prime Minister told BuzzFeed’s Jim Waterson that he had two kitchens in his Notting Hill home – currently being rented out while the Camerons are in Downing Street – and that he extended the second to better accomodate the needs of his disabled son, Ivan.
3) Who run da world? Not girls if the Tories get back in.
Cameron stopped short of committing to a 50/50 gender balance in the Cabinet by 2020. It’ll be “difficult” to achieve it.
4) Christian Benteke is number one in Downing Street if nowhere else.
The Aston Villa forward has had a disappointing run of late. Villa should probably have cashed in after his goal-crazy first season, and, as Villa have struggled so has Benteke, who has just five goals in seventeen games this season. But he’s still the Prime Minister’s favourite Villa player, so that’s something.
5) Nobody does it better than David Cameron.
That the stories that came out of the interview are of the ‘And finally…’ genre, and will be largely overshadowed by the Budget, will be regarded as a win in Downing Street. Some of the questions were fairly robust, but the Prime Minister never really looked ruffled. The Prime Minister has spent his Fridays doing the local radio circuit for some time now, and the practice showed in a classy performance. Small wonder that the Conservative campaign prefers the interviews – where their man is stronger – rather than a risky head-to-head with Ed Miliband.
