Contents from a new book co-written by the Conservative Party’s former Deputy Chairman have suggested that Prime Minister David Cameron engaged in acts of bestiality while at university.
Lord Ashcroft suggested that Cameron committed the act whilst being initiated into the Piers Gaveston Society, a dining club based at the University of Oxford. The book also claimed that Cameron had smoked marijuana, according to a report from The Times.

It was also suggested that Cameron had smoked cocaine at his London home, according to a report from The Independent.
Ashcroft, who was a previous donor to the Conservatives, added that Cameron knew of his nom-dom tax status, where taxes are not paid for on overseas earnings, in 2009, compared to 2010. Ashcroft had engaged in a feud with Cameron after the Prime Minister had promised him a significant job in government if the Conservatives won the 2010 elections.
Interested only in the office
Ashcroft, in the preface of the book, wrote that Cameron was only interested in holding the office of Prime Minister, and not serving the British public.
“Long after he became prime minister, the impression persisted that he was more interested in holding the office than in using its power to achieve anything in particular,” Ashcroft wrote according to The Independent. “His laissez-faire approach can create the impression that he is insufficiently concerned by results, and more than once he has appeared so relaxed that he has only stirred to avert disaster at the last minute. But my own particular beef with him is more personal.”
Ashcroft however praised Cameron for increasing the number of Conservative MPs within the last two elections, the Independent report adds.
A spokesperson for Downing Street declined to comment in published media reports, however a Conservative Party source told the Telegraph that they did not recognise the claims made in the book.
The book, co-written with former Sunday Times political editor Isabel Oakeshott, was serialised in The Daily Mail.
