    must say it seems more likely that Charlie was aggrandising himself than it being the truth.

    Cameron is a twerp but I just can't see him blowing off a call from Obama for a third set of tennis.

    Also seems unlikely that Obama would just casually ring Checkers.

      that it's a standard way of dealing with annoying guests. after an hour, the butler turns up ( or an aide or whatever) and says "Excuse me Prime Minister president X is on the telephone" which gives The prime minister the chance to blow the current engagement off as there's something important to do if he wants to. However if he's enjoying himself, he can say, tell him I'll ring back, so aides vanish and leave him to enjoy his time off, at the same time giving the guest the warm fuzzies that the PM has chosen time with him over Important affairs of state.
