It’s a little known fact that Davie Cameron and Maggie Thatcher went on holiday together in 1989.
The odd couple flew to apartheid – hit South Africa on an apparent “fact-finding” mission, but critics described it somewhat differently:
” David Cameron accepted an all-expenses paid trip to apartheid South Africa while Nelson Mandela was still in prison, an updated biography of the Tory leader reveals today.
The trip by Mr Cameron in 1989, when he was a rising star of the Conservative Research Department, was a chance for him to “see for himself” and was funded by a firm that lobbied against the imposition of sanctions on the apartheid regime.
Critics described it as a “sanctions-busting jolly” that raised questions about the character of the man who, after a week when the Government’s credibility on the economy hit a new low, is now on course to be prime minister in a little more than a year’s time.”
Were Davie and Maggie really on an innocent sojourn or was there something much more sinister taking place?
We haven’t got a clue.
However, rumours have circulated for years that the trip was in fact related to the clandestine purchase of nuclear weapons and Tory party funding.
How very bizarre.
According to those in the know the key word relating to the purchases is Pelindaba.
” Dave and Maggie, sitting in a tree: N.U.K.E.I.N.G.”
The plot thickens.
