British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office has said it “will not dignify” claims involving a his genitals, a dead pig and an Oxford University club induction.
A rival from within Cameron’s own Conservative Party published an excerpt from an unauthorized biography of the prime minister late Sunday. By Monday morning, the world was ablaze with the allegation of behavior that was consistent with Cameron’s teenage reputation as a raucous, drunken child of privilege.

Now, the prime minister’s spokesman will only say that the biographer “himself set out his reasons for writing the book,” refusing to comment further. Lord Michael Ashcroft, a former deputy chairman for the Conservatives, had backed Cameron’s first bid for power in 2010.
It is widely reported that Ashcroft was insulted when Cameron did not offer him a cabinet position in exchange, and began to seek revenge. Ashcroft has also notoriously faced accusations of tax evasion.
Aside from the pig allegations, the excerpt from Ashcroft’s biography of Cameron claims that he frequently smoked marijuana and allowed cocaine in his home as a young man. Those allegations have plagued Cameron for years, and he has consistently refused to comment.
While it is known that young Cameron belonged to Oxford’s exclusive Bullingdon Club — which includes many other top British politicians among its members — the pig incident allegedly took place under the auspices of a shadier organization called the Piers Gaveston Society. That student club is named after a 14th-century noble who some say was the homosexual lover of England’s King Edward II.
Its motto, translated from Latin: “Truly, none remember hearing of a man enjoying another so much.”
