David Cameron has blamed getting his favourite football team wrong on “brain fade”.

The Prime Minister said he supported West Ham United during a speech in south London when he is in fact an Aston Villa fan.

Outlining his 2020 vision for black and ethnic minority communities, he told supporters: “This a country where people of all faiths, all colours, creeds and backgrounds can live together in one place.

“We are a shining example of a country where multiple identities work.

“Where you can be Welsh and Hindu and British, Northern Irish and Jewish and British, where you can wear a kilt and a turban, where you can wear a hijab covered in poppies.

“Where you can support Man Utd, the Windies and Team GB all at the same time.

“Of course, I’d rather you supported West Ham.”

Asked to clarify his loyalties after his speech, which he read from an autocue, Mr Cameron replied: “I had what Natalie Bennett described as a brain fade.

“I’m a Villa fan … I must have been overcome by something … this morning.

“But there we are, these things sometimes happen when you are on the stump.”

The two football teams play in the same colours but that is where the similarities end.
