Calm Down Dear

A wonderful display of Cameron's disdain towards Parliamentary procedure today during PMQs. In response to a question from Tory MP Brian Binley, Cameron replies (my emphasis):
The honourable gentleman is right... (3:20 mins in)
Gentleman? It's a question from an MP from his own party, surely Cameron should say 'my honourable friend'? Thankfully Hansard tidies up the mistake for him:
The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is right about the figures today and that what is happening in the construction industry is disappointing
Given that Cameron is not a real Tory, one has to wonder if it was a Freudian slip.
