Why David Cameron’s Desperate 2015 Gambit Was Political Suicide

For many David Cameron will go down in history for all the wrong reasons. According to the Independent Cameron was the U.K.’s worst Prime Minister in over 100-years. Cameron’s decade long leadership of the Conservative party will soon come to an end and his legacy will be as the man who led the U.K. into walking out of the European Union. It is ironic that when Cameron took the leadership of the Conservative’s it was as a unifying force. Cameron was the man who could unite his party by answering the European question for once and for all. After announcing his resignation in the wake of losing the Brexit vote Cameron will doubtless be reflecting on the fact that he was the architect of his own destruction.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.

    I am in the states and as the results came in I was thinking that David Cameron would be in trouble because of the political capital he spent. I had no idea he would be in resign my office trouble. I am wondering how this will play out with the other parties. UKIP from where I sit will make huge gains in the next election. Labour might improve their situation nationally.

      Time will tell Tony. I think UKIP will now dissapear because their raison de tere no longer exists. Much like the 1980’s Labour is in trouble because of infighting. Tories are divided so arguably also in trouble. I think many of us are hopn g taht we will see a new and moderating party emerge. Many of us firmly believe that no-one represents us, we are in real trouble politically
