DAVID Cameron has provoked fury after admitting he prefers chatting to people who are even vaguely like him.
The prime minister revealed he does most of his shopping at Waitrose because the customers are more talkative, even though it does tend to focus on precision-engineered sausages.
Labour immediately attacked Mr Cameron insisting he should shop in Asda or Tesco and pretend to like people who hate his guts and are never going to vote for him.
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: What Mr Cameron is really telling us is that when he goes to Waitrose he can understand what people are saying.
Their diction is not littered with glottal stops and regional slang. And they talk about books and venison burgers instead of television programmes and crisps.
Waitrose shopper Jane Thompson said: I dont remember John Prescott spending a huge amount of time in Waitrose. Im pretty sure he preferred to buy his greasy, beige food in familiar surroundings.
Asda shopper Martin Bishop added: I dont like talking to posh people because I think they’re pretentious arseholes. So I’d prefer it if they stayed in their own supermarkets.
Mr Cameron said: Why do I have to like everybody? Some of you are absolutely dreadful – and you know you are.
Can I just go to the shops and chat to people without it becoming a big fucking deal? Jesus Christ.
