David Cameron made a boo-boo this morning when he tweeted a link to a parody Iain Duncan Smith.
The PM tweeted, “We’re rolling out a cap on Benefits today – @IDS_MP and I are determined to make work pay, and help the UK compete on the #GlobalRace.” The tweet has already been retweeted 452 times as of 10am this morning.

The biography on the @IDS_MP reads, “Chin chin old bean. Parodia Spucatum tauri”. Some tweets posted from the account include “Chin chin Dave. Round mine for a Pimms later?”

Cameron joined Twitter in October last year and has 366,909 followers. Known to not be a big fan of social media, Cameron has admitted to signing off some of his texts to former News International chief Rebekah Brooks with “LOL” until she told him it meant “Laugh Out Loud” and not “Lots Of Love”.
