David Cameron's kid does hunger strike for Jeremy Clarkson

NANCY Cameron is following in the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi and the Suffragettes by going on hunger strike.

But, unlike the great Indian leader or votes of women campaigners, her protest isn't to do with the British occupation or gender injustice, but to get Jeremy Clarkson back on Top Gear.

Presumably missing sections of the show such as 'Star In A Reasonably Priced Car', Cameron is promising she won't eat until the suspended host is brought back.

"Nancy has threatened to go on hunger strike unless Jeremy Clarkson is restored," David Cameron told the BBC.

"I've told her this is not necessarily a useful intervention. It's not exactly Gandhi, we had a discussion about this this morning."

Clarkson has been suspended after allegedly punching a Top Gear producer after he wasn't served a steak as requested.

Nancy Cameron's mother Samantha added: "Nancy's hunger strike this morning lasted approximately five minutes."

The Prime Minister joked: "It's between lunch and tea is the way it works."

In the words of Gandhi himself: "If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time. And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm."

Solidarity, Nancy.
