The last dregs of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival were marred by a bit of aggro. As we know from the Daily Mirror, Notting Hill resident David Cameron was on his “real holiday” aboard a lavish £21k a week yacht with no photographers invited unlike the ostentatious photocall cum bucket and spade affair in Cornwall earlier in the summer. Typical of Cam the Sham who is not only duplicitous but has a habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. First he was in Africa when his own constituency was flooded, now he chooses to do a runner when the largest street festival in the world and symbol of multiculturalism is held on his doorstep.
PS Long before gentrification when it was a run-down part of the inner-city that Lord snooty and his pals wouldn’t dare to reside in, Notting Hill was scene of this country’s first “race riots”. See BBC history lesson here and Guardian travelogue here.
PPS I doff my cap to Paul Burgin who eerily predicted this Cameron holiday bonanza a month ago.
