Tories deny Cameron rave video

By politics.co.uk staff

The Conservatives have categorically denied claims David Cameron is featured in a video clip of a rave which apparently took place over 20 years ago.

The YouTube footage shows a group of young people dancing in rural surroundings.

At around 13 seconds a close-up of a smiling young man enters the shot. The camera briefly stops on his face before panning down to his chest.

“We categorically deny that it’s him,” a Conservative party spokesman said.

In response to previous allegations he smoked cannabis while at school the Conservatives have argued politicians deserve a private life before entering politics.

The Tories’ stark denial of the rave video contrasts with Mr Cameron’s refusal to neither confirm nor deny the cannabis claims originally made in 2007.
