Should there be a video and it's released, they should call it Putrid British Shag Object.  ;D

The funniest thing about this is how, after the rumours surfaced, various colleagues and friends of David Cameron tried to rebut the claims by saying that they'd never heard of him being in the Piers Gaviston society, which isn't actually a flat-out denial. Instead, it just raises the possibility that Cameron face-fucked a dead pig whilst the PG members looked on, pulling their best Simon Cowell impressions with faces set to maximum dispassionate mode, and then said-

"I'm afraid it's going to have to be a 'no' from me, David."
"Yes, I must say I wasn't convinced at all."
"Have you tried the Bullingdon?"


The best/worst part of scandals of this sort is that to deny them you have to talk about them, which is most of the point anyway. You can't say "The Prime Minister did not fuck a pig", because people talking about the Prime Minister fucking a pig is exactly the problem you're trying to solve. So you have to aim tangentially and talk about how the Prime Minister was not associated with those people or whatever.

And of course it doesn't work, because whatever you do you're still talking about pig fucking implicitly, but it's marginally preferable to any utterance of the word "pig".

It's the same thing with the "will not dignify that with a response" official comment. Because, of course, that is a response; even admitting it's the sort of thing that merits a not-a-response marks as it as A Thing You Are Addressing. It's better than actually coming out and saying "I did not have sexual relations with that pig", of course, but what you really want is for this not to be a thing you have to talk about.

I think he should come out and do a press conference - not addressing it at all but wearing a kermit the frog tie.

That's it. Thread over. Everyone out.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".
