LONDON: British Prime Minister David Cameron accidentally left his daughter in a country pub after a Sunday lunch with friends after a mix-up over which car she was meant to go home in.
Cameron was swiftly reunited with eight-year-old Nancy, one of his three young children, but the incident will add fuel to critics who accuse him of being overly fond of relaxing, or “chillaxing” as he has called it, when not dealing with affairs of state.
The disclosure in the Sun newspaper comes on the day the government launched a fresh drive to tackle “problem families” who lead chaotic lives and cost taxpayers millions of pounds in policing and welfare costs.
Cameron and his wife, Samantha, only discovered their child was missing when they returned to their official country residence, Chequers, in Buckinghamshire, a short drive from the Plough Inn where they had been dining with other families, his Downing Street office said yesterday.
Nancy had gone to the toilet and been overlooked when her parents left in separate vehicles.
“The Prime Minister and Samantha were distraught when they realised Nancy wasn’t with them,” said a spokeswoman. The incident had occurred about two months ago, she said. – Reuters
