David Cameron has a pair of Union Jack Beats by Dre headphones

He wore them on his holidays

We all know David Cameron likes to chillax. But it transpires he does not enjoy a “chaterama” with his wife Samantha on the plane, but prefers to “plug in” – and he has patriotic Union Jack headphones with which to do so. This is a man who knows how to mix work and play.

Today, The Sun published a poor-quality picture of David Cameron wearing these headphones. Their exclusive image was taken by someone on the Prime Minister’s flight to Lanzarote last week.

The headphones are Beats by Dre, and can cost up to £400. They could even be bespoke – I could not find the specific set available on the Beats by Dre website, though another website called “RaptorSkinz” – in no way affiliated with the Beats by Dre brand – appears to sell a Union Jack “decal” (sticker) which you could use to customise your Beats by Dre headphones. There is a small and totally unconfirmed chance that this is what DC has done. The decal costs $29.99 – about £20.

Wesley Gorgo, who spotted the PM on the flight was effusive about his “look”.

“It was hilarious,” he told The Sun. “I found it hugely entertaining the whole way here.”
