Man of the people Cameron and chums at Eton's Bullingdon Club
Op-Ed: The run up to the UK General Election of 2015 began with a dirty start and it has got worse as May 7, voting day, approaches. Monday as Labour launched its manifesto Tory trolls were out in force on social media but you cannot beat traditional tried and tested methods for getting noticed.
Tory leader David Cameron hit the campaign trail undertaking a walkabout in Alnwick, in Berwick-upon-Tweed, his first uncontrolled 'effort' of his election campaign, where he encountered a young male busker.
The man playing a yukelele sang to Cameron "**** off back to Eton with all your Eton chums" and the story is quickly going viral.
It's ironic that this story could reach a wider audience than paid political trolls doing the rounds on social media in an attempt to sway the electorate.
Busking is an age old tradition in the UK and although it is not welcomed in some inner city areas it remains popular.
Cameron was also told by a woman on his walkabout, in what must have been a patronising fashion' to "be a good boy."
Dave was playing the 'I'm a normal bloke card' during his walkabout which lasted about 15 minutes. He reportedly bought some sausages at a local shop and chatted with customers.
I bet the shop was not in a poor part of town or on a council housing estate where residents are feeling the financial pinch due to the Tory Bedroom Tax.
The Daily Mirror is running the story and trying to identify the singing rebel with a ukelele. They do have an image of the guy.

If the busker is identified I and many others would like to give him a pat on the back for saying the words many of us routinely think as we listen to former PM Cameron's tirade of unworkable promises.
Yes that's right former PM as, from now until the election, parliament is dissolved and he is finally just one of us, almost.
