Sam Cam showed us all a stiff upper lip
WHATEVER you think of her husband’s referendum gamble, you can’t have failed to be impressed by Samantha Cameron’s ramrod straight regal bearing throughout his resignation speech. Only an impeccable upbringing instilling rigorous self-control and discipline equips an individual to put up with an ordeal so emotionally draining without fidgeting, snivelling or shifting miserably from foot to foot. We have seen the Royal Family endure heat, cold, boredom, illness and bereavement without putting anything but their best foot forward. Samantha is cut from the same cloth. Her composure was magnificent. Her posture was flawless. She is built of stern stuff and put the rest of us squiggling, wriggling, hair-flicking, nose-touching, eye-dabbing shirkers to shame.
