Prime Minister David Cameron, David Cameron is the master of “chillaxing”, or so says a new biography. On any given weekend the prime minister is partial to a bit of karaoke (his favourite number is apparently the Frank Sinatra classic My Way), downing a few glasses of wine and playing tennis against “the Clegger” – a ball machine nicknamed after his occasional tennis partner, the deputy prime minister.
It’s an image of a prime minister removed from the workaholics of old. Margaret Thatcher kept a hectic schedule when she came to office and both Gordon Brown and Tony Blair were known for their hard work ethic.
What sort of workload should we expect a prime minister to take on? Do you expect 100% dedication, even at weekends? Or is there a case to support a PM who makes sure to take some down time? (The Guardian)
