David Cameron set for 'secret' visit to Harrogate's Raworths Literature Festival

Campaigners among the audience on Thursday, October 17 were particularly annoyed during the interview on stage when 'Remainer' David Cameron told the sell-out crowd he had been “upstaged tonight by Boris” and said “I would vote for the deal."


Mr Cameron was being interviewed by BBC Diplomatic Correspondent James Landale as part of this year's Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival in his only north of England book talk.
