Does anybody really believe David Cameron will quit after the EU referendum?

Stories like this, in the Mirror, make pleasant reading for those of us who have suffered under his Tory governments but strike This Writer as being a device to pacify the plebs.

There are plenty of examples of Tories saying one thing and doing another, after all.

PM David Cameron risks being hounded out by angry backbenchers if he does not quit the day after the EU referendum .

A plot to oust him if Brexiteers prevail or Remain wins by less than 10 per cent is gathering pace.

One Tory backbencher said a big win for the PM looks unlikely so he would be expected to leave, perhaps the day after the result.

The MP said: “That would let him leave in a sensible fashion rather than the bloody mess that it could be.”

Mr Cameron has already pledged to stand down before the next general election, due in 2020.

    yes he will have to go mike as those that wish to leave mp’s will not give up until their death over this point

    the public will be no doubt be on the verge of violence as this will be a close fight and there is no way David Cameron could possibly survive a close fight

    if on the other hand David Cameron got at least a 75% lead in staying in then yes he could well indeed stay

    however with so much infighting that will take place it would be better to quit young as a millionaire

    i know i would

    More fluff to try and make his “battle” look heroic and cover up all the bad news that’s still accumulating snd waiting for the right time to dump it.

    The alternatives are even more monstrous than Porky. I suspect that factions within the party are fighting for pole position so that their preferred monster can step into his still-smoking shoes, preferably very soon. That way the victor will be a “clean skin” who can shape the party in his/her own image with plenty of time before 2020. “Clean” is used here as a relative term…..

    Nobody in his position gives up Power willingly. Thatcher only gave way because a significant number of her own MP’s put the pressure on her to do so in order to save the Tory Party itself. Cameron will only quit if the same happens to him. It is unlikely that he will risk suffering a vote of no confidence in the Commons.

    Cameron will go soon after the referendum but will he resign as leader or will he do the honourable thing and call a general election? Oops silly me I used the word honourable when I meant he’ll spit his dummy and try to take his political enemies (the parliamentary Tory Party) down with him.

    1. Nick

      he should call a general election as the conservative party is no longer
      in reality it becomes a conservative /ukip party in going forward and the public will need to vote for it

    He’ll wriggle out of this, just like he did with his dodgy dealings that he should be out of power for but as usual, the British herd didn’t shout up enough for his dismissal and got away with that like he’ll get away with this mess over the referendum and everything else!
