Samantha Cameron “desperately” wants her husband to triumph in the general election but has admitted she is “hands off” when it comes to politics.

The Prime Minister’s wife, in an interview with the Sun, appeared to counter claims husband David looks to her for advice on difficult scenarios.

Mr Cameron previously said he spoke to his wife about “life and death decisions” including hostage rescues and troop deployment but Mrs Cameron said: “I don’t know what he was thinking of.”

The 43-year-old added: “I’m a fairly hands-off political wife. I don’t get involved in the machinations at all. I don’t think he takes my advice about politics. I wouldn’t want him to, it would be too much responsibility for me.

“We talk about stuff when he gets upstairs, I listen to the radio a lot. As with any husband and wife you get the view of a mum.”

In a recent interview, Mr Cameron said he prefers his Oxfordshire constituency home to his grace-and-favour residences at Downing Street and Chequers.

But his wife is hoping for five more years above the Prime Minister’s office.

She told the paper: “I desperately want my husband to win the election. Obviously it’s up to the British people. If he wins we’ll be here for another five years.”

Mrs Cameron added the Conservative leader was untidy and good at cooking while the pair attempted to keep a family-work balance by going to the cinema and taking part in a quiz night at their children’s school.
