DAVID CAMERON has thanked former Irish Taoiseach Bertie Ahern for his help in avoiding awkward questions about his financial affairs.
The British PM contacted Mr Ahern shortly after his late father’s name was mentioned in the leaked Panama Papers. Cameron said: “I had been on to Bertie before releasing that statement last week. He said to tell the truth. He told me that if that doesn’t work, I should send out an old secretary to say, I ‘never did nuthin’ wrong’. It can’t fail.”
