Former prime minister David Cameron says placing his genitals in the mouth of a severed pigs head has ‘turned out less badly than I first thought’

He used the words “mistake, not a disaster” in unguarded comments caught on camera at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The infamous exploit coined ‘Piggate’ was revealed in the unofficial biography ‘Call me Dave’, which detailed the act as Mr Cameron’s initiation ceremony for the Piers Gaveston Society.

The former prime minister said the revelation of this act had not been as catastrophic as predicted. Speaking to the steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, Cameron said that not putting his genitals into the mouths of anymore dead pigs was “still going to be difficult” and that it was “the gammon of the century.”

Cameron’s comments are likely to provoke some enjoyment from former opponents on both sides of the house, some of whom have been known to refer to the ex PM as David Hameron.
