Whistle-stop trip to city for Cameron 2

Several national papers report David Cameron’s “Cameron Direct” talk in Norwich on Monday 15th June. Rebecca Gough writes in a local paper, the Norwich Evening News:

But the biggest round of applause all evening was in response to a question asking for reassurances on ID cards which Mr Cameron would said he “bin”.

“One of the first things I’ll do is ask my new home secretary to go into the Home Office and find the papers and tear them up and put them in the bin.”

As polished as ever, Mr Cameron answered each question with barely a hesitation but he continued the debate on ID cards and adopted a German accent. It prompted some laughter but also raised eyebrows. He had added that the only way identity cards would work is if people had to carry them all the time – but said it would be un-British for someone to be stopped and asked for their papers while walking the dog.

A woman in the audience raised her hand and asked him: “I wonder about the wisdom of you adopting a German accent?”

Mr Cameron replied: “It was meant to be light-hearted.”
