David Cameron Reveals His Daughter Still Tells Story Of Being Left In Pub In Front Of Xi Jinping

The Prime Minister today brought up a sore memory in front of Chinese President Xi Jinping, as the pair visited a pub near Cameron's country retreat.

He recounted to a local visiting the Plough Inn at Cadsden the story of when he left eight-year-old daughter Nancy at the pub for a quarter of an hour back in 2012.

Cameron was then said to be "distraught" upon discovering that he and wife Samantha had left the premises after a 'Sunday drink' without their child.

But remarking on the tale today, the Conservative leader commented in front of Chinese Premiere Xi that he "won't make that mistake again", after the two leaders visited the same, famed pub.

"I've been in here a few times, I know," Cameron joked with one member of the public, as President Xi looked on, adding: "But I'm not leaving my family here today - I won't make that mistake again."

The Prime Minister commented that daughter Nancy had "coped very well", but revealed she continued to tell the story of her abandonment every time the family visited the Inn.

"Every time she comes here she stands on the table and tells the story about her dad leaving her in the pub," Cameron remarked, in front of a bemused President Xi.

Before leaving, the Asian super-power leader tucked into a portion of fish and chips with Cameron, which he was reportedly "desperate" to sample.
