Dave’s recent encounter with an audience of real people seems to have taken him aback. He’s so used to posing in front of a backdrop of tame Young Tories (all silent) or a stage-set of members of the British armed forces (also silent) that he obviously couldn’t understand how it is that all these vocal people didn’t love him and swallow his every word.
