So let’s get this straight. David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, has not been riding this horse, or so his speaker affirmed yesterday. But today, at the EURO summit about the End of the World, Cameron gives another press conference to rectify his overworked speaker and to confirm that he, in fact, did ride said horse, whose name is, or more precisely was Raisa.

David Cameron, British Prime Minister
Raisa, the horse
Yes, really?

Well he got the horse from Charlie Brooks. And "Charlie is a friend since 30 years," "more than 30 years." And "Charlie is a good friend," and furthermore a "neighbor in the constituency," they "live only a few miles apart". Aahpaaht. But he hasn't "been riding the horse since the elections of 2010." Before the elections, however, yes he did go riding with Charlie. Charlie "has a number of different horses" (who hasn't), and one of them is, or was, Raisa, a former police horse, which he did ride, and "we are all very sorry to hear" "that Raisa is no longer with us," and he doesn't think "he'll be getting back into the saddle anytime soon," because his life "as a prime minister is so busy."

Rebekah Brooks (note the resemblance with the famous Medea painting)
Raisa Gorbatchev
Did Cameron mount a presser to apologize to the former Soviet President Gorbachev for riding on a horse with no name the name of Gorbachev wife Raisa, who is no longer with us either, since she passed away in 1999? No. What is it then? Well, Charlie, you know, Charlie Brooks, he’s the husband of Rebekah Brooks, the perennial editor of The Sun, the Murdoch tabloid. And Rebekah had, of course, no idea that some of her Sun news-room men were hacking mobile phone voicemails left and right to score the next scoop, no, she didn't,  she had no idea, and she is --- at least was --- completely innocent, until she unexpectedly stepped down to spend more time with her family, and perhaps with Raisa. Mind you, Rebekah (the spelling alone) had nothing to do with rumors that she and her newspaper were in cahoots with the Metropolitan Police (Scotland Yard) and paid police officers for underhand information, although, paying for information has always been done, mind you, everybody does it, until Rupert Murdoch admitted three days ago that there had been a “culture of illegal payments” at The Sun, of which he knew nothing, and he's so shocked to learn about all the filth that has been going on. And heads will roll.

Yes, and? Raisa was on loan from the Metropolitan Police. It was a police horse. On loan. The Metropolitan Police had loaned Raisa to the Brooks (Charlie & Rebekah).

Anyhow, everything should be forgiven now, since Raisa is dead and Cameron won't get back into the saddle any time soon. He's so busy, as a prime minister.
