Cameron loses cufflink bet on rugby

David Cameron has lost a bet on the rugby with his New Zealand counterpart

David Cameron will be scouring his wardrobe for a jacket with the longest possible sleeves after losing a bet on the rugby.

England's 22-30 loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham means that under the terms of his wager with New Zealand counterpart John Key he must wear Kiwi cufflinks when he appears in the House of Commons.

The coffers of the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal will also be swelled as part of the wager struck when the pair met at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka.

"A bet's a bet - I'll be making a donation to Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and wearing Kiwi cufflinks," Mr Cameron wrote in a Twitter message for his fellow leader.

Mr Key shot back: "Dear David. Those NZ cufflinks will look great. Please send pics."
