Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, left his obnoxious brat in a pub after having a Sunday drink, Downing Street has confirmed. It said the incident had happened "a couple of months ago".
Baroness Warsi is reported to have spent a quarter of an hour alone at the Plough Inn at Cadsden, in Buckinghamshire, before Mrs Cameron returned to collect her. Number 10 said the couple had been "distraught" when they realised that the Baroness was not with them and when the prime minister's wife had returned hurriedly to collect the Baroness she had found her haranguing staff, exhorting them to work harder and asking if they had British passports.
The Camerons had been at the pub, near the prime minister's country residence, Chequers, with Baroness Warsi and their other children, as well as two other families. After leaving, Mr Cameron went home in one car with his bodyguards and thought Baroness Warsi was with his wife and their other children in another car. Mrs Cameron had assumed Baroness Warsi was with her carer, the prime minister, and the mistake was discovered only when they got home.
A Downing Street spokesman described the event as a "nightmare" for the prime minister but was able to give reassurance that no members of the public had been in any danger.
