David Cameron has laughed off merciless mockery of a photograph of him on the telephone to President Barack Obama.
The Prime Minister posted the grim-faced image on Twitter on Wednesday evening, with the message: “I’ve been speaking to @BarackObama about the situation in Ukraine. We are united in condemnation of Russia’s actions.”
But it was immediately ridiculed by other users on the social networking site. Actor Sir Patrick Stewart was among those joining in the ribbing, using a tub of wet-wipes as a handset.
