There was relief yesterday as the prime minister, David Cameron, finally showed a readiness for the coalition government to come to grips with the serious financial and structural problems facing the country by announcing a clampdown on excessive Indian dancing in schools.
Mr Cameron took the opportunity in a radio interview to highlight the steps the government is taking to deal with the double-dip recession, unemployment and worsening financial crisis across the country, the main part of which includes a commitment to stamping out the worrying rise of the popularity of Bollywood style dancing classes amongst British youth.
In the interview, Mr Cameron blamed the banking crisis in particular on a lack of regulation of Far Eastern style dancing under the previous Labour administration:
What is clear is that the present mess in the banking sector was caused by the failure of Gordon Brown to control the disturbing rise of Bollywood style dancing by children, and that is why this government is committed to bringing in really effective regulation of risky banking practices in the City by clamping down hard on out-of-control Bhangra in our schools.
Mr Cameron was speaking after a series of damaging scandals have hit his administration including revelations that the Business Secretary Vince Cable once secretly danced a waltz on peaktime Christmas television and accusations that the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has been attending Lambada classes while working as a government minister.
