DAVID Cameron and George Osborne were in charge of putting the names of Oscar winners in the right envelopes, it has emerged.
Accountants PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said they subcontracted the job to the former prime minister and chancellor, assuming ‘any child could manage this without fucking it up’.
A PwC spokesman added: “We have a long standing relationship with David and George and we always said that if they ever needed some work we would try and help them out.
“Obviously we were aware of their capacity for ineptitude, but clearly no task is too simple. Lesson learned.”
David Cameron said: “We did warn PwC that we may accidentally set the building on fire. This is an excellent result.”
