Cameron commits angry gaffe on breakfast radio show

29th July 2009

David Cameron committed a rare slip of the tongue on the Absolute Radio breakfast show this morning.

The Conservative Party leader used the word 'tw**' on Christian O'Connell's breakfast show when outlining his views on social networking tool Twitter.

He told the presenter: 'The trouble with Twitter, the instantness of it - too many twits might make a tw**.'

The leader of the opposition then followed his first gaffe with yet another, by saying that people were 'p***** off' with politicians.

He has since apologised for both outbursts, although his aides confirmed that 'tw**' is not actually classed as a breakfast show swear word.

An Absolute Radio Breakfast Show Blog post said that the comments had received an overwhelming reaction.

However, the post also pointed out that Mr Cameron's 'p*****' comment seemed to be 'trying to engage people about politics', although it did provoke an 'immediate' reaction from listeners.
