David Cameron's Dinners: A Further Five Food-Based Scandals Involving Politicians (PICTURES)

Following the stomach-churning scandal of David Cameron’s Downing Street dinner club, we’ve come to the sweeping and absolute conclusion politicians and food simply don’t mix.

Whether its former Conservative Agriculture minister John Gummer shovelling a beef burger down his four-year-old daughter’s throat in the midst of the “mad cow” disease scare, or David Miliband brandishing a banana, it’s abundantly clear never the twain shall meet.

And who could forget the day former Prez George W Bush was almost taken out by a pretzel, causing him to faint and topple off the sofa, severely bruising his face in the process?

John Prescott’s eggy run-in with an angry farmer in Rhyll and Margaret Thatcher’s association with the white stuff have also made it into our gallery…can you suggest any additions? Keep it clean and we'll add the best ones.
