Skippy's death is least of Cameron's troubles

When the British Prime Minister David Cameron went to Spain for a few days in May, his choice of holiday reading was 'Skippy Dies', a black comedy by the Irish novelist, Paul Murray, about teenagers in an expensive Dublin boarding school and their obsession with drugs, sex and the meaning of life.

Cameron knows a thing or two about that kind of adolescent angst. He went to Eton and was lucky not be expelled at the age of 15, back in 1982, when he was caught smoking cannabis.
