British prime minister says he bungled admission of investment revealed in 'Panama Papers'

British prime minister says he bungled admission of investment revealed in 'Panama Papers'

British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted Saturday that he bungled his admission of his investment in an offshore fund revealed in the mammoth data breach of a Panama law firm.

Cameron drew laughs and applause from a sympathetic audience of Conservative Party activists as he opened his speech with a mea culpa.

"Well, it has not been a great week," he deadpanned. "I could have handled this better. I know there are lessons to learn, and I will learn them. And don't blame No. 10 Downing Street or nameless advisors. Blame me."
