British Prime Minister David Cameron left his 8-year-old daughter behind at a pub after lunching with his family and some pals a few months ago, Downing Street admitted.
Nancy Cameron wandered off to the bathroom while the prime minister and his wife, Samantha, were sorting out rides home from The Plough pub in Cadsden, a hangout near their country retreat, Chequers, the British press reported.

Much Ado about Nothing.
If this were anyone else he’d be arrested and brought up on charges
I agree, politicians have so many assistants these days they assume someone will be minding the children, staff, laundry, packing, etc, etc so the basic responsibilities are soon forgotten.
The big story here is that he American MSM does not tell us about all the times that President Obama has abandoned his daughters in some DC or South Side Chicago bar.
The tyke was there for about 15 minutes, officials said.
It does happen. I don't think much of Cameron as PM, but this really is not news, and nothing to be ashamed of.
I left one of my twins behind (very briefly) I swear I heard the car door slam twice behind me so thought both were in the car. So I drove off. Immediately the other twin said “Uh mom you just left him” I slammed on the brakes (I hadn’t went far) I was still close enough so he didn’t have far to get to us. I apologized to him for I know 20 minutes. I felt so bad. It still makes me feel bad to think about it.
I have 4 kids and have always had a nightmare of leaving one of my kids behind. I’ve gotten together with all of my family (3 siblings) and we all pile into our cars after a picnic or to go somewhere and have called the cars making sure my kids (who wanted to ride with cousins were really in there)
Crazy stuff can happen to the best of parents.
a case of too many handlers & assistants, and an over reliance on same in personal matters
I can understand what you did with your twin son as they look exactly alike, but their personalities are somewhat different, but it would be entirely different if you like Cameron and most likely Obama abandoned your prepubescent daughter alone in some bar.
They’re having a field day with this on the London Telegraph website.Nasty stuff.
Also... there’s a cultural difference between a US bar and a British Pub. It said they lunched. Sometimes the best food you can get in the UK is at a “pub.”
Those English girls all end up in the pub sooner of later....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVaqQe3V498
Pubs are often the centers of village life. No big deal.
In other news, here are some photos of Nancy Cameron riding her brand new pony.
We accidently left our youngest daughter for 5 minutes (at the most!) in her car seat when we got home from church because everyone(3 big sisters/mom/dad) thought someone else had gotten her. She was never in danger! - I figured it out instantly and no harm done - these things do happen.
Depends on the pub, some pubs are family orientated, but others are “rough as” places where you wouldn’t want to go with a grown adult woman (never mind kids) unless you wanted a fight...
My wife and I have six kids and would take all six plus about 3 or 4 more neighborhood kids to church every sunday
We had a mini van with room for about 6 to 8 kids stuffed in the back
I did a head check but did not realize we picked up an extra kid after church and left my youngest daughter at the church
Never realized it until we got home and counted heads coming out the door...
Needless to say we were mortified...
Stuff happens...youth pastor dropped her off ten minutes later
I still wake up at night about the time I lost sight of our 3 yr old at the store. 3 minutes. She’ll be 29 next wk. Tax lawyer.
