It’s that time of the year again – where Prime Minister David Cameron and his Deputy Nick Clegg try to appeal to Muslim voters by awkwardly wishing them “Ramadan Mubarak”. Don’t believe me?
Watch the cringeworthy videos below, and listen to the strain in Cameron and Clegg’s voices as they try in some sort of pidgin accent to say, “Ramm-er-dan. Moob-aa-rack”.
You’d think the pair were ambassadors for Islam, with Cameron teaching us what “Islam is all about” and Clegg empathising: “If you’re one of the many families fasting from sunrise until sunset, I certainly don’t need to tell you how challenging it is this year with Ramadan falling during our longest days.”
P.S. Sweet of Dave to film his Ramadan message at the same time as his gay pride message eh?
