British fans are playing the blame game when it comes to explaining why Britain’s Olympians are faring poorly so far, so much so that they’re even blaming Prime Minister David Cameron.
Newspapers have labeled it the ‘Cameron Curse,’ saying the few times the leader has shown up to watch, the British team has lost. When Cameron showed up to watch diver Tom Daley, he fell short of winning a medal. The same thing happened when Cameron turned up to watch Britain’s cyclist Mark Cavendish who missed out on winning the gold.
The ‘Curse of Cameron’ had not escaped the notice of Twitter users. Several people went on the website to brand Cameron a jinx and urge him not to watch other British medal hopefuls in the wake of Daley and Waterfield’s fourth place finish.
One, Jim White, said, “David Cameron watching Tom Daley, after being at cycling on Saturday. His desperate effort to associate with gold is turning into a curse...”
Mike Forster said, “I blame David Cameron #jinx.” Nick Barlow said, “David Cameron: please keep your medal jinx away from the Hampton Court area on Wednesday.”
