9 Times David Cameron's Mum Would Have Told Him Off For Not Wearing A Tie

David Cameron gave out some flack at PMQs on Wednesday - hurling insults at Jeremy Corbyn across the Despatch Box for not wearing a tie properly.

In a bizarre throwback to the days of playground 'your mum' jokes, the Prime Minister quipped: "I think I know what my mother would say. She'd say: 'Put on a proper suit, do you your tie and sing the national anthem.'"

But it seems the Conservative leader could do with heeding his own sartorial advice a little more.

He's quite happily had meetings with world leaders, posed for national election campaign posters and wondered round the country meeting constituents, all the while without wearing either a suit or tie.

Disgraceful behaviour, we're sure Mary Cameron would agree.

So here are 9 times the Prime Minister could have done with paying more attention to his mother's apparel advice.

1. Prepping for the G8 with Putin

2. And later, sharing a laugh with Angela Merkel

9. He managed it here. But did the PM dare admonish his chief election strategist, Lynton Crosby, for turning up to work like THIS?!

We doubt it.
