‘Super chilled out’ David Cameron gets his kicks at posh festival

The former prime minister even posed for a photo with a Corbyn fan.

David Cameron has been spotted smoking and hanging out with a Jeremy Corbyn supporter at a festival in Oxfordshire.

The former prime minister also photobombed a Labour councillor’s selfie as he attended the Wilderness Festival.

The upmarket festival, which offers yoga and glamping, was headlined this year by Two Door Cinema Club, Grace Jones and Bonobo.

Cameron’s most notable act while there was to hug a fellow reveller who wore a dazzling Jeremy Corbyn jacket.

With a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other, the former prime minister was apparently oblivious to the words on the back of Lucy Edwards’ jacket when he posed for a snap which then surfaced on Instagram.

Edwards later told the Mirror Online how she had pulled off the audacious manoeuvre.

“He told me to look at the camera but I had to keep my back turned obviously. He was super chilled out. Obviously didn't know I had Corbyn on my back until I walked away though,” she said.

 

 

In a more unsettling scene, Cameron also featured in the background of photo taken by festival goer and Labour activist Vanessa Price.

The 47-year-old councillor was posting with husband Steve – but Cameron can be seen just behind the pair staring down the camera lens.

The former PM was with wife Samantha and their daughter Nancy as Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit were on stage.

A shellshocked Price said: "I live near here and I'm a Labour councillor, I've helped with demonstrations in Witney and stood outside his offices but never set eyes on him. I've only ever seen him on the telly, and then he pops up in a field, at a festival."

It comes after the head of Theresa May's policy unit, George Freeman, revealed plans for a one-day 'Conservative Ideas Festival' for Tory activists and their families – dubbed a ‘Tory Glastonbury’.
