Sir Mick Jagger has dropped out of a David Cameron-organised event at Davos, apparently over fears that he was being used as a “political football”, the UKPA reports.It appears that the Rolling Stone frontman may have had some reservations about the way that the British press were covering the event — take a look at the Sun’s headline here, for example.
Jagger wasn’t too keen about being linked with the right-wing Tories, it seems.
Here’s the statement from Jagger, via the UKPA:
“During my career I have always eschewed party politics and came to Davos as a guest, as I thought it would be stimulating.
“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.”
