David Cameron picks Harry Potter character to emulate

David Cameron has chosen child-wizard Harry Potter as the JK Rowling character he would most like to be.

The prime minister said there were lots of the author's characters he would not like to be - and that the British public might see him as one of them.

He was asked to choose a Rowling character to emulate by a student at Kazakhstan's Nazarbayev University.

Mr Cameron said his nine-year-old daughter had just begun reading the books so he was now "rediscovering them".
