It’s not been a great week for David Cameron – he even said as much himself.
On Thursday, the British Prime Minister admitted he profited from his father’s offshore trust after the Panama papers leak, Jimmy Carr threw a bunch of shade at him, reports today suggest he got a £200,000 gift from his mum which may not have been taxed, and hundreds of thousands of people called for him to resign as PM, first online and then in a massive protest outside Downing Street yesterday.
Unfortunately, things are only going from bad to worse for Davey Boy, as social media users everywhere continue to troll the big man relentlessly on Twitter.
Honestly, we didn’t think it could get any better than the response to #PigGate, but this new hashtag definitely runs that one pretty damn close.
Twitter users have been having a great time mocking Cameron’s financial arrangements using the hashtag #CameronTaxSongs to creatively demonstrate how the PM has made a complete pig’s ear of this whole tax business.
Here’s a selection of the best Davey Cameron tax-avoidance based tunes:
"When I find myself in times of trouble,
Mother Mary comes to me,
With a cheque for £200,000,
Let it be"

Obviously, that pig got a cheeky mention or two…
"Hush, little piggy, don't you cry. One day you'll be an off shore pie."#CameronTaxSongs

But, of course, not everyone got into the spirit of things…
#CameronTaxSongs show how many people don't actually know the details and facts of investments in general and the taxes associated
