David Cameron has responded to the growing furore over ‘MiddlesbOrough-gate’ – the latest Tory gaffe in which the Tory candidate in the Middlesbrough by-election misspelled the name of the town he wants to represent in Parliament.
Taking a break from a ‘country supper’ at the house of a press contact who asked not to be named and insisted that ‘no relevant texts were sent about this!’ to demand a ‘right of reply’, Cameron said:
“This is an innocent mistake which any Tory who couldn’t care less about the plebs in that area could make. Where is this Middlesbruff, anyway…? More champers!”
