WATCH: David Cameron lets slip that the Queen "purred" after Scottish referendum defeat

Alex Salmond thinks he should “hang his head in shame” for disrespecting her.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTER David Cameron has been asked to apologise for saying that Queen Elizabeth “purred” with contentment after he informed her that Scottish voters had rejected independence.

The Conservative leader was caught by news cameras yesterday, chatting in New York with businessman and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.

David Cameron: The definition of relief is being Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and ringing the Queen and saying, “It’s alright, it’s okay.”That was something.

She purred down the line…

But it should never have been that close, it wasn’t in the end.

There was a time in the middle of the campaign when it felt…

Michael Bloomberg: But that’s the press, they have to have stories…they put up the polls…

DC: Yeah… I’ve said I want to find these polling companies and I want to sue them for my stomach ulcers because of what they put me through, you know…

It was very nervous moments.

MB: That’s why you get paid the big bucks.

DC: Yeah.

Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond has been among the first to attack Cameron for what he called his “pathetic” conduct, and suggested some Scottish voters would have been only delighted to hear they gave the UK Prime Minister an ulcer.

David Cameron has been Prime Minister for four years, and he hasn’t learned the basic civility of not gossiping about what Her Majesty the Queen thinks or doesn’t think, to Michael Bloomberg or anyone else…
That’s absolutely pathetic, and he should hang his head in shame.
