George Osborne Smiles When Asked About David Cameron's #PigGate Allegations

Monday morning was no ordinary start to the week as the entire nation awoke to allegations the Prime Minister once did something obscene to a pig.

Incredible revelations contained within a book by Tory donor Lord Ashcroft covered everything from drug use, debauchery and "bizarre rituals" from David Cameron's time at university.

Inevitably, members of the government soon found their press conferences overrun by questions relating to what has become known as #PigGate.

And judging by George Osborne's cheeky little grin he thinks it's just as funny as the rest of us...

Extracts from Call Me Dave, published in the Daily Mail reveal shocking allegations including suggestions that Cameron, 48, knew of Lord Ashcroft's "non dom" status back in 2009.

Downing Street refused to comment on the allegations which are likely to cast a shadow over the Conservatives' upcoming annual conference in Manchester.
