Denial after rave footage emerges online

A spokesperson for the Conservatives Party denied that a video that's surfaced on YouTube shows their leader David 'Dave The Rave' Cameron havin' a top buzz matey at the Sunrise Gathering in 1988.

The video was spotted by right wing blogger Guido Fawkes, who used to run PR for the Sunrise events back in the 80s. "This has been building up for a few weeks and now Guido is getting calls from Dead Tree Press diarists, it is probably time to bring it out into the open," he writes. "Is this a picture of a long-haired 22 year-old David Cameron... You decide." The Conservative Party have "categorically" denied that it is Cameron in the footage, according to popular disco news-sheet The Daily Mail

However, Guido Fawkes claims to have teamed up with an image matching expert to settle the argument - from his results (which you can see here, it looks pretty conclusive.

This video raises a serious question: was Cameron 'on one'?
