British prime minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha left his 8-year-old daughter after visiting a pub. The English press went berserk and Cameron's staff worked hard to taper any backlash from an incident that happened 'a couple of months ago,' according to the pub's bartender.
In Monday's E-Block, CNN's Erin Burnett discusses whether the press' attacks on the British Prime Minister add up.
British prime minister and his wife leave daughter, 8, at a pub
British Prime Minister David Cameron thought his daughter Nancy was with her mom. Her mom, Samantha, thought the 8-year-old was with her dad.
In fact, they had left her behind at a pub about a mile from the prime minister's country residence, staff at the pub said.
"The prime minister and Samantha were distraught when they realized Nancy wasn't with them," Cameron's office said in a statement Monday. "Thankfully when they phoned the pub - she was there safe and well. The prime minister went down straight away to get her."
The incident happened "a couple of months ago," said a bartender at the Plough at Cadsden who declined to give his name.
It was reported widely in the British press Monday.
What Bunk! How many kids get left in Airports, Disney, Casinos and Parks by parents that REALLY don't care?
I hope we all can become the kind of parent the PM strives to be.
