Nick Richardson: Piers Gaveston Society

From Saturday Morning, 8:12 am on 26 September 2015

According to the unauthorised biography of British prime minister David Cameron, his student days were lurid.

The exclusive Piers Gaveston Society, in which David Cameron allegedly, in earlier days, involved himself with a dead pig’s head was once helmed by Nick Richardson, now an editor at the London Review of Books.

Nick Richardson tells Kim Hill about his time in the Society, which he says put on parties where “sex acts involving pigs’ heads wouldn’t have been unusual”.
