Is this the most British thing ever? After finishing a press conference outside 10 Downing Street, outgoing British PM David Cameron sang a few notes before closing the front door, saying “right … good” and taking his microphone off. The “doo, doo, doo, doo” wasn’t familiar to Ms Tips, but it sounds like Cameron won’t miss facing the press outside his front door.

Classic FM has had a go at plotting just what notes Cameron was singing, and has given this analysis:

“So, Wagnerian fanfare, Beethoven-esque harmonic doubt and then a strange contemporary flourish at the end. Does this composition demonstrate the unresolved nature of Cameron’s swift departure from office? Is it perhaps a comment on what might be next for 10 Downing Street?”
