Cameron did not burn £50 note
MAY I refer to the letter from Tony Probert in The Post on March 5? Having read Mr Probert's letters over the years, I do appreciate that he is not a member of the David Cameron fan club, but in his ongoing enthusiasm to lambaste the Prime Minister, he could at the very least base his criticism on the truth.
He states that David Cameron and Boris Johnson, in order to gain admission to the Oxford Bullingdon Club had to burn a £50 note in front of a beggar, and that the little rich Eton boys delighted in completing their exercise.
Had Mr Probert read his Guardian and Daily Mirror a little more carefully, he would have seen that the burning of a £50 note is the current initiation and it was not in place in the time of Cameron and Johnson.
Publicising misinformation is common practice and a number of websites make the same mistake as did Mr Probert, some of them including George Osborne in the alleged incident and he did not go to Eton.

May I conclude by agreeing with Mr Probert on one point, that being that I find this current ceremony both childish and totally distasteful.
