Slept through six years of Latin.

Serious questions are being asked about the educational record of Prime Minister David Cameron. This after he was foxed by simple questions by American TV host David Letterman. Cameron spent his school years at Eton College a school which makes Latin compulsory. He also studied 'Philosophy, Politics, and Economics' at Oxford and should have been acquainted with simple Latin phrases. More than enough to be able to work out the literal translation of Magna Carta.

Cameron also failed when asked who wrote 'Rule Britannia!' answering Edward Elgar who wasn't born till almost a century after 'Rule Britannia!' was written. The tune was actually written by Thomas Arne who like Cameron attended Eton Collage. Arne also wrote a hymn for the school and each year all boys attend a Chapel service dedicated to him. So why didn't Dave have a clue as to who Arne was?

"I'm reminded of the case of Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg " Said Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls."He was a German Defense minister and rival to Angela Merkel who fabricated his doctorate degree. He was found out because he was a bit of an idiot as well and when people looked into he had copied most of the work."

"I'm not all that surprised that Dave didn't know those things." The Mayor of London Boris Johnson stated. "I mean at Eton he was always having a sleep in chapel and as for Latin he always had his fag do the work for him. He wasn't able to bring Nick Clegg with him on the 'Letterman' show. Not that it would have done much good. Clegg is a bit of a duffer as well I mean he can put a nice shine on a pair of shoes and make some toast but as a fag he is not really the best."

Cameron has received some support from close political friend the US Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney. A man who himself was shown up as not being all that bright this week when he demanded the windows were opened on his campaign jet. "David is a good man. He might not know about history but he can read a map. When I spoke to him in London about invading Iran next year he could pick it out on the map. I thought it was in Africa."

A full review of Cameron's qualifications has been started by the Hose of Commons standards committee
