David Cameron Memoirs

Further evidence of the Conservative Party being able to destroy itself from within: Cameron chooses this moment to publish his memoirs.

Cameron was lucky: he is one of the worst PMs in history, but he was helped out of that hole by being followed by Mrs May, who was even worse; so we concentrate on her, not him, and she gets the blame for everything that goes wrong for Brexit.

Problem is, it is all down to him and his weakness, and we will be reminded about all of his shortcomings as readers dig into his book. Worse for him, we are already getting the predictions of just how bad it might be, with pundits plotting the route to the break-up of UK and NI - which is anathema for the Conservative and Unionist Party: he will never be forgiven, and he will go down in history as the PM who tore the country apart.

So, after a few years of basking in the awfulness of May's limelight, he has now jumped right back onto centre stage so we can remind ourselves how bad he was. All he had to do was do nothing, but at the age of 52, he decided we needed to be reminded of his part in all this, so he publishes his memoirs; his advisers might have suggested he wait until he was a pensioner, but once you have been centre stage it is probably tempting to want to get back out there: hence the book.

In the bits I have seen, he has the gall to blame everyone around him, but not himself. But, listening to a Times journalist who interviewed him, he knows in his heart that he has probably wrecked the United Kingdom, and that is how he will be remembered for centuries to come. Every politician wants a legacy - he has certainly got that!

I'd rather read his obituary.

Re: David Cameron Memoirs

It never ceases to amaze me why so many of the British people would even consider voting for privileged toffs who couldn't give a toss about the average person.

Are so many of you born touching your forelock and knowing your place?

I know my place Saoirse, Sitting at the barbie, looking across the lake at the mountains, with an Efes at in hand and the dogs at my feet. What is this brexit thing anyway? Ahhh.

Re: David Cameron Memoirs

Cool sir cool

Lucky sod

Especially when i am here in Valencia in day 5 of a Gotta Fria

Non stop thunderstorms and torrential rain

But as regards topic its beyond me why so many do seem to know their place. They are aware these privileged elite Bullingdon types wouldnt wipe their shoes on them- yet off they go voting for them and supporting these toff leeches

Yes I get it that its part of the British psyche to believe because someones born into privilege you should " respect them give them untold billions and never question why you have such dysfunctional types as your unelected head of state etc- but when you are allowed a vote why in gods name waste it on even more privileged free loaders

Re: David Cameron Memoirs

I do think it maybe different this time. At a GE the public an see how the 'ruling elite' appointed a Prime Minister, a proven liar, who then sidelined parliament, just to keep their own money in tax havens. no even the 'general public' can ignore this. It is a shame that labour is led by Corbyn, otherwise, if they had a credible leader, they would walk it.

Re: David Cameron Memoirs

They use similar fear tactics to religion, they are owned by the very media who demonise the opposition.

Re: David Cameron Memoirs

Possibly but in the 21st century can people not grasp that a self serving elite dont give a toss about the ordinary person

Ironically Brexiteers say they refuse to be " ruled" by elitist types- then when theyre asked go vote they opt for the most openly elitist self serving class types of all!!!!
