David 'please love me' Cameron praised the selection of the city and the work of The Housemartins in the House of Commons earlier;
"In terms of popular music, Hull has a great record. I remember, some years ago, that great Housemartins album London 0 Hull 4"
Which was instantly punctured on Twitter by Housemartins frontman himself Paul Heaton;
"Well, apparently David Cameron likes London 0 Hull 4. Which part of the attack on his policies and rich friends did he like best???...When I took over my pub in Salford, the first people I barred was Cameron and Osborne. That ban still stands"
Heaton joins fellow musicians Keane and Primal Scream who have expressed 'horror' and 'opposition' to a Tory government who used their music for a manifesto launch and a Tory Party Conference respectively, and of course The Smiths Johnny Marr who bluntly banned Cameron from being a fan of his music!
