Cameron has had more dinners with people called David than women


On Thursday’s BBC Question Time, Labour MP Tessa Jowell said the Prime Minister had had more dinners with men called Michael than with women.

Discounting his wife Samantha obviously, Cameron had 61 dinners with men in 2013, and only three with women.

The Mirror’s ampp3d blog looked at all the fund-raising dinners at the Conservative Leaders Group and found he had four dinners with people called David, four with people called Michael and four with people called John, and only three with women.
