AP­PAR­ENTLY form­ing a coali­tion govern­ment with the Lib­eral Democrats is not the first amaz­ing trick Tory leader David Cameron has man­aged to pull off.

Ma­gi­cian Eti­enne Pradier from Wye was per­form­ing at a char­ity event in London be­fore the elec­tion when Mr Cameron seemed to pre­dict his own destiny by pulling the 10 of hearts from his deck of cards.

French il­lu­sion­ist Mr Pradier said: “There were a lot of celebri­ties there and on the top ta­ble I asked David Cameron to take any card he wanted.

“Then I asked the au­di­ence to guess which card he had picked. Af­ter a cou­ple of wrong guesses I said ‘Hang on, this is a pre­dic­tion card’ and turned it over and it was num­ber 10.

“I’m not po­lit­i­cal but it was great and it made him laugh.”

Mr Pradier has kept the signed card as a me­mento since the pre­dic­tion came true.

The French ma­gi­cian will be per­form­ing at the Sin­den The­atre at Home­wood School in Ash­ford Road, Ten­ter­den, in aid of the Kent Air Am­bu­lance from 7.30pm on June 14. To book call the box of­fice on 01580 763826.
