British Prime Minister David Cameron Speaks to ABC's Diane Sawyer

DAVID CAMERON: I'm -- I'm not sure. I mean, it may, it may be something that happens and then, you know, then it changes again. I mean, I'm a great respecter of the old and the wise and the experienced. You know, they've seen it all and done it all. And you know, if you stop listening to them, then you're making a big -- a big mistake.

I think it's interesting. There are quite a lot of young leaders coming through. I don't think it signifies, I think each circumstance is -- is probably different. I mean, in ten years time, we might be sitting here saying, "Isn't it great? We've got back to 65 and 70-year-olds running the world."

So I -- I don't know. I don't think it's any one particular shift.

DIANE SAWYER: They might not have given the president Radiohead. Right? Didn't you give him a playlist?

DAVID CAMERON: I did, I did, and Lily Allen as well, I remember.

DIANE SAWYER: And Lily Allen, right.

DAVID CAMERON: I met Lily Allen after that and said, "I gave your record to the president."

She said, "Yeah, I know, but I'm still not voting for you." (LAUGHTER) So you can't win, can you?

DIANE SAWYER: So I have to, Goose Island 312?

DAVID CAMERON: Very good.

DIANE SAWYER: Did you have it cold? How was it?

DAVID CAMERON: I have. I've been, I've, as ordered to by the president, I put it in the fridge. And I've been drinking it while watching some of the World Cup. And it's very good. It's very good beer. Beer from Chicago, very different from the stuff we have back in the U.K., but good nonetheless.

DIANE SAWYER: Well done and that's a big welcome to America.

DAVID CAMERON: Thank you very much.
