David Cameron in bubble wrap? Prime Minister appears to be stuck on Tube

The Conservatives have been having a rough ride recently..

There is a man waddling around London bundled in bubblewrap and he looks an awful lot like David Cameron.

As spotted by Huff Post UK, the sheathed figure got stuck in the Tube while on his mission across the capital.

He also fell flat on his face, a misfortune which only served to shore up suspicions it was the beleaguered Prime Minister.

However despite the current disarray in the Conservative party, as the Tories attempt to navigate through the fall out from resignations and sex scandals, the bubblewrap was not the Prime Minister’s way of protecting himself from the wrath of the electorate.

It was in fact a marketing stunt for Ratesetter, a peer to peer lending business.

David Cameron was instead writing for The Church Times, saying that Britain should be more “confident” and “evangelical” about its Christian status.

He also suggested expanding the roles of faith based organisations. He wrote:  “I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives.”
