Swine flu detected in UK for first time, days after former Prime Minister famed for sex with pig rejoins government

Former British prime minister David Cameron, as part of a college hazing, "inserted his penis and/or scrotum into a dead pig's mouth." Cameron resigned from office in 2015 in unrelated disgrace after initiating and then losing the Brexit vote. He returned to the cabinet last week, a pick of desperation as the governing Conservative Party's bench of unconvicted candidates capable of emulating human sentiments thins precipitously. This week, the United Kingdom reports that it has detected a human strain of swine flu there for the first time. [via Parker Molloy]

Based on early information, the infection detected in the UK is a distinct clade or form – 1b.1.1 – which is different from recent human cases of H1N2 elsewhere in the world.The person infected, who has not been identified, had a mild illness and has recovered. They were not hospitalised and were not known to have worked with pigs, the Guardian understands. How they came to be infected remains under investigation.The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) is carrying out contact tracing of close contacts to prevent further spread of the virus. It is not known at this stage how transmissible the strain is or if there could be other cases in the UK.

We're all trying to find the guy who did this, etc.

as a student at Oxford University, former British prime ministerDavid Cameron inserted "a private part of his anatomy" into the mouth of a dead pig, as part of an initiation ceremony for the Piers Gaveston Society.[1][2] Ashcroft and Oakeshott recount that a Member of Parliament and contemporary of Cameron's at the University of Oxford told them the anecdote[3] at a business dinner in June 2014. They initially assumed the statement to be a joke, but the MP repeated the anecdote some weeks later, and for a third time with more detail some months after that. The MP said he saw photographic evidence of the event, describing the dimensions of the alleged photograph and naming an individual who he claimed now possessed the image
