What Premier League team has David Cameron finally chosen to support?

New, comment

Not West Ham or even Aston Hammers, actual Aston Villa

When he's not making dad jokes in the Commons or mocking the other political parties of the UK - David Cameron governs the United Kingdom.

Part of governing the UK is making visits, you know - getting out and about so the people of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can see you and relate to you. A big part of relating to people, especially in the UK is via Football. I'll let 'Aston Villa fan' David explain.

"We're a shining example of a country where multiple identities work. A country where you can be Welsh, and Hindu, and British. Northern Irish and Jewish and British. Where you can where a kilt and a turban, where you can wear a hijab covered in poppies. Where you can support Man United, the W'Indies and Team GB all at the same time. Of course I'd rather you supported West Ham."

Foot-in-mouth, eh David? The below screengrab from The Telegraph shows David Cameron returning to his roots, with a delightful Villa (might still be West Ham, who knows) coloured scarf.

DAVID SILLY DAVID

But seriously, how do you even forget your favourite football team?

Actually, who can blame him for saying West Ham? He probably had pork on his mind.
