UK Prime Minister David Cameron had no idea he was being filmed when he made this embarrassing gaffe. He was talking to the Queen and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at an event in Buckingham Palace to mark the monarch’s 90th birthday when he said ‘two of the most corrupt countries in the world’ are coming to a key London summit this week.
He was discussing with a small group of people which also included Commons Speaker John Bercow and Leader of the House Chris Grayling as well as Queen Elizabeth II and the Archbishop of Canterbury when he said
‘We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning, talking about our anti-corruption summit. We have got the Nigerians – actually we have got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain.’ He then added – ‘Nigeria and Afghanistan – possibly two of the most corrupt countries in the world.’
While the Queen made no comments, Archibishop Welby shook his head and responded ‘But this particular president is actually not corrupt… he is trying his best.’
Diplomats are now scrambling to make amends for the offensive comments.
We’ll love to hear your thoughts!
