Anyway, Cameron has been one of my favourite ones because of the songs that he’s tried to pretend he liked and then been found out and made to look like a complete tit.
He also tried to claim he was a big fan of the Smiths, which again obviously set Mr J. Marr off like a katherine wheel. And you can pretty much draw the same conclusions. Cameron just is not an emotional guy in that way. Coldplay or Snow Patrol maybe. But not the Smiths.

So I guess politicians and music are basically a foregone conclusion; if Cam had got up there and started singing and playing air guitar to the Jam, perhaps it would have been convincing, but he’d still look like a tit.
But the fact is, these things are almost always cooked up by some press officer in the car on the way to the conference to generate a bit of “edge”, fully aware that half the journalists and audience probably have no idea who the band is either so they’ll get away with it. Until someone on twitter points it out.
Anyway, he’s gone now so we don’t need to worry too much. Until Theresa May suddenly declares herself a massive Specials fan or something.
