David Cameron and the bag of socks
David Cameron was recently questioned over the contents of his bicycle bag and had to confess that it contained his pants and socks.

It cannot be easy being the leader of the opposition on a normal day but to add to the pressure, the Daily Mirror recently sent one of its journalists cycling after him as he rode to work.

Intrepid newshound Julie McCaffrey bravely biked after the Tory boss, remarking on his "strong thighs" and questioning him on the contents of his bag.

"Er... my pants and socks. I always have clean shirts in the office," Mr Cameron responded.

He is not the only politician to have been fielding questions over his legwear recently.

Alan Johnson, the health secretary, was recently photographed by Peterborough newspaper the Evening Telegraph sporting a very undistinguished hole in his sock through which his big toe was making a break for freedom.

The publication urged Mr Johnson to take the time to purchase a new pair of socks.
