Sir Mick a closet Tory?

English: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones NYC...

He says it ain’t so:

Mick Jagger has pulled out of pulled out of an event due to be hosted by David Cameron at the Davos summit, complaining of being used as a “political football”.

The Rolling Stones singer had been due to attend a tea party at the Swiss resort as part of a campaign to promote Britain alongside others such as the model, Lily Cole, and the inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee

But he said in a statement on Tuesday: “During my career I have always eschewed party politics and came to Davos as a guest, as I thought it would be stimulating.”

He added: “I have always been interested in economics and world events. I now find myself being used as a political football and there has been a lot of comment about my political allegiances which are inaccurate. I think it’s best I decline the invitation to the key event and curtail my visit.”
