British Prime Minister Forgot Daughter In Pub

One too many for the prime minister? David Cameron and his wife Samantha accidentally leave their 8-year-old daughter Nancy behind in a pub!

David Cameron, along with his wife Samantha, their three children, and two other families had gone to Sunday lunch at a pub called The Plough. After Nancy snuck away to the bathroom, the Camerons went home in separate cars. It wasn’t until they arrived home that they realized that Nancy was missing!

The mix-up meant that little Nancy was left alone at the pub for about 15 minutes, according to a report from The Guardian. An official Downing Street spokesperson said “the prime minister and Samantha were distraught when they realized Nancy wasn’t with them.”

The prime minister rushed back to the pub where he found his daughter with staff. She was “safe and well.”

The incident happened in April when David left the pub in one car with his bodyguards, thinking Nancy was with his wife and other children in the second car. His wife had assumed that Nancy was with her father.

The spokesperson declined to discuss whether Cameron was drunk: “He had gone with friends at lunchtime, with a number of families with children, and they left in various different vehicles.”

Maybe a headcount would have been useful? Do you think that was embarrassing for David, HollyMoms?
