His days with the Bollinger-swilling Bullingdon Club are the ones David Cameron would most like us to forget. So the PM must be less than thrilled that one of his oldest friends, Peter Czernin, is making a film about the infamous drinking club, timed for release just before the election. Czernin, heir to the Howard de Walden millions, was Dave's first flatmate in London. He is now a film producer, whose hits include The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. His latest project is Posh, a film adaptation of Laura Wade's hit stage play. The film, scheduled for release next year, features rising stars Max Irons, Freddie Fox and Douglas Booth as members of the Riot Club, a thinly veiled parody of the "Buller". The movie has already caused some controversy after winning a £1m grant from the British Film Council. Tory MPs were incensed that taxpayers' money should be used to fund a film that will clearly embarrass the Prime Minister. "This looks like revenge for George Osborne cutting film-industry subsidies," snorted Tory MP Angie Bray. Let's hope Pete and Dave can stay on speakers.

Q. I'm currently perusing holidays suitable for a family of five in mid-September: two adults, twins aged two and an eight-month-old baby. We are looking to travel independently to somewhere quiet and picturesque. A nice little beach is most important to us with safe accommodation close by. We went to Scarborough and loved it, but there is no guarantee we will get good weather. We want a flight no more than two hours with a short transfer. Name withheld, Sheffield
