As David Cameron preaches about running the country and the economy sensibly, and on budget, we've just learned that he's so far behind on his water bills that the water company H2O are considering court action against him, with a view to sending the bailiffs in.
It has emerged that David Cameron has been taking drastic evasive action over paying the bill, to the extent that he promised a Customer Services operative that he would pay the bill on his expense account.
The bill remains unpaid.
A spokesman for H2O Water told us that the company had sent David Cameron several letters and phone calls - even sending a legal representative round to the Cameron abode - in a bid to strike an agreement whereby Cameron would settle the water bill without recourse to legal action.
The spokesman claimed that all such overtures had stalled and that the Cameron's appeared determined to avoid settling the account. He went on to say that if Cameron couldn't manage his household bills, then he was hardly the man to run the country.
A spokesman for David Cameron's office appeared blase to the point of flippancy as he told us:
"Mister Cameron always settles his utility bills promptly, and he does not claim them on his parliamentary expense account. You must be talking about a different David Cameron."
More when the well dries up.
