Prime Minister David Cameron has officially washed his hands of West Ham United having unexpectedly switched allegiances from Aston Villa while campaigning for this year’s General Election.
The space reptile, Conservative, cited the Hammers’ 2-1 League Cup defeat at Leicester City as the reason for his abandonment, coming as it did on the same night his first love Aston Villa beat Birmingham City 1-0.
But the move is sure to fuel speculation that Cameron’s U-turn was prompted by Monday’s revelation that he likes his Ham not West but somewhere decidedly south.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, one senior Tory MP maintained that Villa’s stirring victory in the West Midlands derby was the reason for Cameron’s defection and not anything more untoward.
He said: “He loves Villa, you know. He was even there the other summer for the pre-season friendly against Parma.
“Er, did I say Parma? I meant ‘some Italian side’.
“Yes, that ought to save my baco…er, day. Save my day.”
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “I hear David lost his rag somewhat when he was asked about the defection by West Ham’s Spanish goalkeeper Adrián.
“Apparently he objected to the question ‘¿por qué?’ for some reason.”
