David Cameron, also known as the British Prime Minister, accidentally left his young daughter behind at a local pub after enjoying a family lunch. The AFP reports that Nancy Cameron, 8, took a trip to the restroom while her parents were preparing to leave. Unfortunately for everyone, they didn't realize the youngster wasn't with the couple when they returned home. According to Downing Street, Nancy was left to her own devices at the establishment for roughly fifteen minutes.
Upon discovering that their daughter was missing -- Cameron thought she was with his wife, while she though the child was with him -- the pair became understandably distraught. However, after phoning the pub in question, the parents learned that the girl was safe and sound with the staff. She was collected shortly thereafter.
A Downing Street spokeswoman said that the couple takes full responsibility for their actions, adding that no one involved with security will be punished for the incident. "He had gone with friends at lunchtime, with a number of families with children, and they left in various different vehicles. As you know, the prime minister is a very busy man but he always tries to live as normal a life as possible with his family."

Some people leave their keys in a bar. One guy left an iPhone 4 prototype. British PM left his daughter. http://t.co/StzeL34k
David Cameron has blamed the previous Labour government for leaving him with no choice other than to leave his daughter in a local pub.
David Cameron was just being consistent when he left his daughter in a pub. After all, he's abandoned millions of other people's children.
If David Cameron can forget his daughter in a pub is he really competent to run the country? Perhaps the Camerons need parenting classes
