David Cameron has referred to the General Election as “career defining” today in a clear Freudian slip.
The Conservative leader was speaking at Asda’s headquarters in Leeds, when he made the comment, swiftly correcting himself to “country defining”.
Already, the blunder has been captured online.
This is a ‘career defining’ election, says Cameron by mistake https://t.co/qHC5N7OR7z

Twitter is already lighting up with comments.
It seems the electorate are not impressed with Cameron’s attitude, accusing him of putting his own needs ahead of those of the country.
Hey @David_Cameron, is this career defining in the same way Mummy got you your first job?

Perhaps ironically, this is a gaffe that could be career defining for Cameron.
