David Cameron puts new balls at top of Christmas list
David Cameron has revealed he would like some 'squidgy tennis balls' and 'peace and quiet' for Christmas, but said that only one can be a guarantee (despite MPs’ 17-day break)
All David Cameron wants for Christmas is some "squidgy tennis balls" and "a bit of peace and quiet", he has revealed.
The Prime Minister did accept that the chance of rest in his job cannot be guaranteed, but said it would be a "nice thing".
Mr Cameron, an avid tennis fan, said he had started playing the sport with his seven-year-old son Elwen, and wanted balls that would not travel too far when you "really whack" them.
Speaking to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire he said: "A bit of peace and quiet would be quite a nice thing but you can never bank on that in this job."
"I want some squidgy tennis balls. I have started playing tennis with my son. I would like those ones which you can really whack and they don't go very far," he added.
"If Santa's listening, you can get them down the chimney pretty easily and there will be a very happy recipient at the other end."
MPs get a 17-day break for Christmas, with The House of Commons in recess from 19 December through to 6 January.
