Today David Cameron is trying to win the youth vote in the upcoming EU referendum. To do this, he has given a speech to students at Exeter University — claiming that young people will be be hit hardest in the event of Brexit.

Taking questions from the audience after his speech, one student pointed out that it may be difficult for many youngsters to vote given that the referendum clashes with Glastonbury. Answering the question, Cameron attempted to get the crowd on side by confessing that he too loves the music festival. However, rather than attend the lively festivities, he makes sure he watches it ‘at home in front of a warm fire’.

However, Mr S is slightly suspicious of Cameron’s claim. After all, Glastonbury takes place in the summer. Does Cameron really have a fire on in his house in June — or could it be that he doesn’t actually watch the festival as avidly as he claims? Mr S suspects the PM is telling porkies.
