London Bridge is burning down, burning down, burning down...

Ooops, got that wrong. I should have said Tottenham. Oh, and Enfield. And Brixton. And... never mind.
Meanwhile, our great PM is going back to leave a tip: www.telegraph.co.uk/news
, although the BBC obviously have inside information as they tell us he told her to keep the change from a 10 euro note: www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-po
Mr Cameron graciously told the woman not to worry, even though he knew she'd made a mistake. A mistake, no less. Not recognising someone and telling them to get their own drink (incidentally, table service attracts an extra charge in Italy) is a mistake? What a ponce! Now, I wonder why an Italian waitress working in the sticks should apologise for not knowing who the bloke is. I mean, most people in the UK wish they'd never seen his face, and quite a few would be pretty happy never to see it again. But I digress.
Mr Cameron, I'm sorry to inform you that you've been mugged. Tipping isn't the norm in Italy, especially so when you're having a cappuccino, much less a 100% tip. That's just being extravagant and showing off, not to mention grabbing a photo opportunity. No wonder Ms Ariani gushes how lovely he is.
Sure beats being mugged in Tottenham, though!
