Did David Cameron just deliver one of the most subtle political put downs to Mitt Romney possible?
Asked during an interview on Sky News on Thursday afternoon whether he was "glad to see the back" of the Republican presidential candidate after a tense two days in which Romney appeared to criticise the Olympics, the prime minister said: "It was good that Mitt Romney came to town."
The comment reminded Washington watchers of 'When Mitt Romney Came To Town', an attack ad created by a group supporting Newt Gingrich in his attempt to secure the Republican nomination for the presidency.
The video sought to paint Romney as a "predatory capitalist" who cost American workers their jobs during his time as head of venture capitalist firm Bain Capital.
Sneaky prime minster, very sneaky.
Cameron added: "I think he could see from what he saw in London that the Games had been well put on well, I'm sure he will reflect on that."
"It was good that he came, and good he saw from himself, that London and Britain is a country that can deliver."
