David Cameron's Grange Hill role model

Prime Minister David Cameron has joked that TV's Grange Hill bully Gripper Stebson was a role model during his school days.

Mr Cameron was giving a speech in Liverpool at the time outlining his "big society" initiative, alongside Grange Hill creator Phil Redmond.

According to the Grange Hill Online website Gripper bullied fellow pupils from 1981 until being expelled in 1983 after turning to hardcore racism.
