Prime Minister congratulates Ben Ainslie on winning the global race (for America)


First things first. WHO IS TALKING ABOUT THE GLOBAL RACE, Mr Prime Minister, apart from you, who seemingly can't stop? Second, @mushybees makes a fair point...

The PM looks increasingly confident on Twitter but this latest malapropism adds to a growing pile.

On the 21st September it was discovered that Cameron had favourited an offensive tweet from a virulently left-wing account begging him to recall William Hague from Kenya.

In July the PM tweeted in support of Iain Duncan Smith's welfare reforms, but fired off his congratulations mistakenly to the parody @IDS-MP account.

Perfect tweeting may well be impossible, as Cameron should know. It was he who coined "too many tweets makes a twat", after all.
