Cameron could be descendant of Moses

Some people have been fond of likening Gordon Brown to Moses – albeit one who leads the people into the sea without it having parted.

But a Jewish scholar at the University of Manchester claims Cameron (left), who just had to go one better, could actually be a direct descendent of the biblical figure.

The Times writes that Dr Yaakov Wise traced the Tory leader’s ancestral line back to Elijah Levita who lived from 1469-1549.

The name Levita is the Latin form of Levite, meaning a Jew descended from the tribe of Levi, the son of Jacob, and one of the original 12 tribes of Israel.

Dr Wise said: “It is possible that Cameron is a direct descendant of Moses or, at least, a cousin.”

As Moses is thought by some scholars to be a composite figure of several different people - does that make David Cameron a bit of a mongrel?

If DC leads his people out of the slavery of Labour's making, the parallel will be even starker. What's the new state pension age to be?
