David Cameron should not have gone surfing; he should have recalled Parliament
David Cameron did the right thing in returning to London in the wake of the execution of the journalist James Foley by a British jihadi. Just as President Obama did in heading off to play golf, Cameron took exactly the wrong course of action yesterday, however, in being seen on a public beach with a surfboard and tweeting images of where he is holidaying.
This Prime Minister has a background in corporate affairs and communications. As such, how on earth could he think this to be the right image to send out at this moment in time? For his dereliction of duty, we make David Cameron our most worthy Wally of the Week.

Thoroughly disagree. Recalling Parliament is a typical knee-jerk reaction that is only justified in very, very extreme circumstances and then, frankly, only if Britain is proposing to engage with ISIS forces on the ground. The man needs and deserves his holidays as does everyone who works 90 hours a week. Mobile phones are wonderful things …
To a degree I agree Michael….but he does seem to have quite a few holidays.
I suppose, in his favour, he is supporting the British travel industry.
I was interested to read the recent survey suggesting that more of us would stay and explore the UK if petrol were cheaper.
Who is the little boy he has just kicked in the pixels?
Who advises this man? Is he trying to prove his insouciance in the face of looming world crisis….or trying to prove how normal he is by holidaying with ‘ordinary people’?
This man has had a ‘judgment bypass’.
We will fight them on the beaches !
