David Cameron is set to meet Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish later this month to discuss methods for dealing with rich but repugnant characters who tarnish the good name of the profession they purport to represent. Although the proposed meeting is said to be about football’s influence on a wider society and nothing to do with defending the indefensible, it is understood that the discussions could influence Cameron’s management of his cabinet colleagues.
The unswerving loyalty and support shown by Dalglish to his loathsome charges in the face of widespread opposition is said to have particularly impressed Cameron. However, Cameron denies that this has any relevance to his robust endorsement of Health Secretary David Lansley’s proposed NHS reforms.
“Football has led the way on dealing with unacceptable behaviour by affluent bigots,” Mr Cameron said. “They know that they will be made to duck out of the spotlight for a short while then put their name to a bland apology before continuing their prosperous lifestyles. I think we can learn a lot from that.”
David Cameron, despite his privileged upbringing, maintains that he is just an ordinary Aston Villa fan when it comes to football. “My support for my team is absolute”, he said. “In fact, I probably have claret and blue blood in my veins.”
