David Cameron allegedly carried out an obscene act on a dead pig during a bizarre initiation ritual while at university, a new book claims.
The UK Prime Minister is reported to have placed his “private parts” inside the mouth of a dead pig’s head while studying at Oxford University.
The shocking allegation features in ‘Call Me Dave’, a biography of Mr Cameron co-written by former Conservative peer Lord Ashcroft and ex-Sunday Times political editor Isabel Oakeshott.
The story was recounted to the authors by a contemporary of Mr Cameron who went on to become an MP.
He reportedly said the pig's head was resting on the lap of a member of the Piers Gaveston Society – a dining club at Oxford – while Mr Cameron carried out the act.
The new book goes on to claim another member of the group has photographic evidence of the alleged act.
The secret society, which also claims actor Hugh Grant and the Mayor of London Boris Johnson among its former members, is known for its debauched parties, sexual excesses and bizarre entertainment.
Mr Ashcroft told the Daily Mail: "Perhaps it is a case of mistaken identity. Yet it is an elaborate story for an otherwise credible figure to invent."
Furthermore, there are a number of accounts of pigs' heads at debauched parties in Cameron's day."
The book also claims the Tory leader was part of a "dope smoking group" called the Flam Club at university.
James Delingpole, a friend of Mr Cameron's at Oxford, said they smoked cannabis together while listening to the rock band Supertramp.
He said: "My drug of choice was weed – and I smoked weed with Dave."
Mr Cameron studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford's Brasenose College between and 1985 and 1988.
