British leader forgets young daughter at pub

Accidentally leaving your child somewhere is a rare mistake. This may not be the case for British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha, who left their 8-year-old daughter Nancy at the Plough at Cadsden.

The parents and their children were having lunch with friends at the pub and Nancy “wandered off to the Ladies as the PM and Samantha were arranging lifts,” The Sun reports.

They didn’t realize Nancy was missing until they made it back to the prime minister’s country home about a mile away from the pub.

“The incident happened ‘a couple of months ago,’ said a bartender at the Plough at Cadsden who declined to give his name,” CNN reports.

Cameron returned to find Nancy helping pub staff about 15 minutes after the party left, the Press Association said.

The prime minister “went home in a car flanked by bodyguards thinking Nancy was with Sam and their other children in a second vehicle,” the Sun reported, “Sam thought Nancy was with her father.”

Nancy returned home with her father, no harm, no foul.

Maybe this is why Obama has body guards attend events with his children — so he doesn’t have to worry about losing them and having the media find out later.
