"http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financialcrisis/9272356/Turn-off-your-iPad-David-Cameron-and-start-dealing-with-Britains-debt.html">my Telegraph column yesterday, I quoted a senior adviser
to the Prime Minister saying that he ‘spends a crazy, scary amount of time playing Fruit Ninja’ on his iPad. It seems No.10 has been denying it — telling "http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/politics/article3419644.ece">The Times (£) that ‘the real culprit’ is ‘his six-year-old son’.
Now, all fathers will immediately recognise this transparent defence. I used to blame my kids for my being into Glee, but it doesn’t wash (they’re four and two and male). I won’t name the official
whom I quoted, suffice to say that this was not a half-remembered conversation but a verbatim quote. And the other problem No.10 has is that Cameron has apparently admitted to his Fruit Ninja habit
in the past. Today’s Daily Mail even "http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2146526/If-gold-medal-chillaxing-Dave-win-New-book-lifts-lid-love-karaoke-tennis-date-nights-Sam-hes-hooked-Fruit-Ninja-iPad-game.html">quotes him
saying he regards it as an alternative to reshuffling his Cabinet. He has apparently cleared all the levels on Angry Birds.
The good news is that his new iPad App on the government’s performance (or lack thereof) will soon be ready. That’s one game we all want him to win.Tags: Apple, Coalition, Computers, Conservatives, David Cameron, Downing Street, IPad, UK politics
