Villagate David Cameron Makes Aston Villa Blunder
22/4/15 - We Villa fans had always thought we had backing from higher powers, with both HRH Prince William and Prime Minister David Cameron Claiming to be fans of Aston Villa but the #Villagate scandal may have put pay to that theoryas David Cameron `forgets` his Villa allegiance and tells an audience to support fellow claret and blue wearers West Ham.
He claimed it was `brain fade` due to the stresses of an election campaign but that excuse doesn`t hold water for me, can you imagine how shell shocked you would need to be to forget which team you supported?
Whilst giving a speech on minorities Cameron said `"You can support Man Utd, the West Indies and Team GB all at the same time - of course I'd rather you supported West Ham."Doh!
When reminded of his previous allegiance the Prime Minister said "I had what Natalie Bennett described as a brain fade," Mr Cameron said.
"I'm a Villa fan …. I must have been overcome by something this morning. But there we are, these things sometimes happen when you are on the stump."
Many of Cameron`s critics rounded on the remark which soon started to trend as #Villagate
