Lord Ashcroft with David Cameron at the Launch of the Victoria Cross Heroes in LondonLord Ashcroft with David Cameron at the Launch of the Victoria Cross Heroes in London
David Cameron allegedly took drugs and enjoyed wild evenings with an Oxford dining club known for its debauched parties, it was claimed last night.
The sensational claims that the Prime Minister was in a “dope smoking group” called the Flam Club and took part in a debauched initiation, were made in an unauthorised biography Call Me Dave by ex-Tory peer Lord Ashcroft – long seen as a thorn in the side of the Tory chief – according to the Daily Mail.
The billionaire philanthropist has been at war with Mr Cameron for years and wrote the sensational biography after the Prime Minister allegedly failed to give him a “significant” job.
Sources close to the Prime Minister said they “do not recognise” the sensational allegations in a book by former Tory treasurer Lord Ashcroft after the pair reportedly fell out.

The book also alleges Mr Cameron put a “private part of his anatomy” in the mouth of a dead pig’s head in an initiation ceremony for the debauched Piers Gaveston Society.
But in the book both Ashcroft and Oakeshott consider whether the alleged pig incident is a case of mistaken identity.
They write: “Perhaps it is a case of mistaken identity. Yet it is an elaborate story for an otherwise credible figure to invent.
“Furthermore, there are a number of accounts of pigs’ heads at debauched parties in Cameron’s day.”
