Curse of Cameron

Cursed

So, that widely hyped 'curse of Cameron' then. It must be true, of course: it's in the newspapers. David Cameron must personally be blighting British sport to an unprecedented extent. Let's have a quick look at the trail of destruction wrought by our ill-starred PM:

Tennis

Since DC became PM, Andy Murray has: been the first British Wimbledon men's finalist for 74 years, the first British men's grand slam title since 1936, an Olympic gold medallist and now, gloriously, Wimbledon champion - the first since Fred Perry 77 years ago. Laura Robson, meanwhile, has risen from 260 in the world to 27.

Curse rating: You Cannot Be Serious

Cricket

Since DC became PM, England have won the Ashes away for the first time since 1986/7; white-washed India at home to become the world's number one Test side; beaten India away in a Test series for the first time in 28 years, and have lost only two of the twelve test series they've played.

Curse rating: Not Out

Athletics

Two words really: Best Olympics Ever. OK, three but you know what I mean.

Curse rating: C'mon

Rugby

England won the 2011 Six Nations, Wales won a Grand Slam in 2012, and won again in 2013. OK, so that's largely a domestic matter. How have the home nations done against Southern Hemisphere opposition?
Oh.

Curse rating: Offside

Football

I think there was some sort of international cup in 2012 wasn't there? And England were mostly rubbish. So that's presumably Cameron's fault - just like the rubbish World Cup in 2010. And the rubbish Euro 2008, World Cup 2006, Euro 2004 and so on and so on.

Curse rating 30 40 47 Years of Hurt (and counting)
