David Cameron’s bodyguard is in hot water for leaving a loaded gun and Cameron’s passport in an aeroplane toilet. As an ex-PM, Cameron is apparently still entitled to this sort of security detail. I kind of get that, even though nowadays he’s really nothing more than a private citizen who used to have an important job. Didn’t we all?
But what really got me with this story was the fact that the bodyguard had Cameron’s passport with him. Why? Is DC so rich and posh that he has other people to carry all his stuff at all times? Or do the security services think someone so dim they once left their own child behind in a pub couldn’t possibly be trusted to get himself to the departure gate with the right paperwork?
Any other examples of rich/posh folk being unable or unwilling to do the simple things the rest of us take for granted?
