David Cameron, prime minister and sardine sandwich enthusiast

Forget about talks of coalitions, the 2015 general election seems to be coming down to one key point: kitchens.

 

That’s right, the first outrage was that Ed Miliband’s kitchen was too drab but then came the knockout blow: he has two kitchens – hence the title “two kitchens” Miliband.

 

Now, Prime Minister David Cameron has let The Sun into his Downing Street digs to show the UK just how hard it is to try and swing voters when you have to find time to eat your Weetabix and make sardine sandwiches.

 

Here’s what we learned about Cameron’s kitchen: 


He likes sardine, tomato and lemon sandwiches ...

Yes, the Tory leader whipped up his speciality “in seconds” for the lucky camera crew. Don’t forget the dollop of mayonnaise to make it extra delicious, he says.

But could he be prepping them in more of a ‘show kitchen'?

As Cameron doesn’t appear to adhere to the clean-as-you-go mantra, it’s hard to believe that this immaculate kitchen belongs to the PM. Could that second space be revealed soon? Whatever the truth, take note of the kitchen decor, Ed.

He has a good range of pans

These have to be the cleanest pans we’ve ever seen – where are the burn marks? Are you sure you don’t use a second kitchen, David?

He keeps his toothbrush next to the Weetabix

Nope, we don’t know why either. They are both important activities, mind.

He can focus while eating a sandwich

Following on from Miliband’s much ridiculed attempt to eat a bacon sandwich which hit headlines last year, politics was still at play as Cameron demonstrated he could hold a conversation and maintain eye contact while eating a sandwich.
