The PM David Cameron has brushed off claims that culture secretary Maria Miller should resign after he cited polls showing just 4 people out of 5 want her to go.
In an interview yesterday, Mr Cameron strongly reiterated his support for his embattled culture secretary:
“I’ve looked closely at the polls and they clearly show that only 4 people want her to resign. Admittedly another poll showed 8 out of 10 people wanted her to go but that’s still only 12 people altogether so it’s not very many people at all, is it?”
Osborne – 20 million people want Miller to stay
The prime minister was strongly supported in his backing of the culture secretary by the government’s expert number-cruncher chancellor George Osborne who pointed out that recent polls indicated as many as 20 million people wanted Ms Miller to remain in her post out of a possible 100 million people.
Ms Miller was also supported by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Mr Iain Duncan Smith who argued that in his opinion he couldn’t really give a flying f*ck about facts.

Mr Iain Dunce Smithers, Work, Pensions and Unemployment Secretary, claims he was misquoted by a lazy journalist with left-wing tendencies, in that what he actually said was he couldn’t give a flying f**k about Maria Miller’s 15 homes, or any facts, or any figures, or any people’s feelings, or any f**king foreigners trying to find work in Britain, or any other feckless f**kers on the fiddle for that matter, about which he had absolutely no f**king knowledge whatsoever…….. :)-
