June 11, 2012 permalink

A British father drove home from a pub leaving his eight-year-old daughter Nancy alone. British social services have not intervened in the life of this family. The father is prime minister David Cameron.

Fright ... PM David Cameron and Nancy

HORRIFIED David Cameron got home from a Sunday lunch with family and friends — and discovered he had left his eight-year-old daughter in the pub.

He dashed back and found little Nancy with staff at the Plough Inn in Cadsden, Bucks.

No 10 said: “The PM and wife Samantha were distraught when they realised Nancy wasn’t with them.”

Nancy got left in the pub loo when Mr Cameron drove off after his lunch.

She wandered off to the Ladies as the PM and Samantha were arranging lifts — and they only realised she was missing once they were back home.

Downing Street said: “The PM and Samantha were distraught when they realised Nancy wasn’t with them.

“Thankfully when they phoned the pub, she was there safe and well.

“The PM went down straight away to get her.”

The Camerons and children Nancy, Arthur, six, and 22-month-old Florence had been having Sunday lunch with two other families at the Plough Inn near the PM’s country home Chequers. Afterwards the PM went home in a car flanked by bodyguards, thinking Nancy was with Sam and their other children in a second vehicle.

Sam thought Nancy had jumped in with her father.

Mr Cameron drove the two miles back to the 16th-century pub and found Nancy happily helping out the staff.

She was away from her family for about 15 minutes.

A Plough insider said: “You’d have thought someone would have done a headcount or something.

“Pub staff found their daughter in the toilet and didn’t know what to do.

“It’s not like you can look up David Cameron in the phone book and then ring to say, ‘You’ve left your daughter behind’.

“It’s frightening the Prime Minister of Britain can forget something so important as his own daughter.”

Country home ... Chequers

Friends of the PM have recently told how he likes “chillaxing” at Chequers at the weekends.

They say he enjoys watching films on telly, napping and enjoying three or four glasses of wine with lunch.
