David Cameron's New Baby Sleeps In A Cardboard Box

By Robert Paul Reyes


"David Cameron`s new baby sleeps not in a cot, but in a cardboard box, the prime minister has said.

Mr. Cameron said when Florence was born last month; she did not have a cot so his six-year-old daughter Nancy decorated the box for her to sleep in.

The prime minister`s wife Samantha had given birth to the baby girl while the family was on holiday in Cornwall.

Mr. Cameron told the Daily Telegraph the baby stayed sleeping in the box, even after they returned to Downing Street." BBC

This is a touching and heartwarming story. You would expect the Prime Minister`s baby to sleep in an antique crib, not in a cardboard box.

The Prime Minister is doing wonders for the self-esteem of his six-year old daughter Nancy by continuing to use the box that she decorated as a bed for his infant daughter.

A cardboard box inside the elegantly appointed 10 Downing Street might seem incongruous, but it speaks to the humanity of the Prime Minister.

I bet Cameron`s approval ratings have shot through the roof. I like him a hell of a lot more than Obama.
