Bad Language

Put to him that there had been much made recently about public figures setting an example to young people, with the example given of Wayne Rooney swearing at a referee, the PMOS broke in and said he thought he knew where the question was leading. The journalist then asked what was the Prime Minister’s view on foul and abusive language, and did he use it himself, the PMOS said he thought the person the journalist was referring to was capable of speaking for himself. As he no longer worked in Government, the PMOS said he did not feel the need to comment.

Asked again about the Prime Minister’s attitude towards bad language, the PMOS said people could judge for themselves about how the Prime Minister behaved in public, and a good example of that was at the Liaison Committee meeting today.
