    David Cameron "Put A Private Part Of His Anatomy" Into A Pig, Book Claims

    The prime minister allegedly interfered with a dead animal while at university, according to claims in a new biography by a former Conservative peer.

    David Cameron allegedly put a "private part" of his body into a dead pig while at Oxford University, according to a book released this week.

    A new biography of the prime minister, written by former Conservative peer Lord Ashcroft and ex-Sunday Times political editor Isabel Oakeshott, is being serialised in the Daily Mail. The book – entitled "Call Me Dave" – claims that Cameron carried out the act on a dead pig while at a meeting of the university's elite Piers Gaveston drinking society.

    One passage describes the "extraordinary suggestion" that the "future PM inserted a private part of his anatomy into the animal's mouth" while at one such party.

    According to the book, one individual claims a pig was "resting on the lap of a Piers Gaveston society member while Cameron performed the act".

    Ashcroft and Oakeshott say their source for the story is a current MP who was at university with Cameron. They say the politician has repeatedly made the accusation about the prime minister at a number of events in the last year.

    The authors say this MP believes that photographic evidence of the incident exists and is held by a named individual. However, the person who is alleged to hold a photo of the supposed act did not respond to requests for comment from the authors.
