He was the prime minister who may not have been prime minister at all – twice.
David Cameron slithered into office in 2010 as part of a coalition between the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats after no UK political party managed to gain enough seats to govern alone.
It was suggested later – by one of Cameron’s own MPs – that the coalition agreement had been hammered out in March 2010 – two months before the general election – meaning the uncertainty following the election result was fake and the country had been stitched up.
Five years later, Cameron was returned to Downing Street with a wafer-thin Parliamentary majority – one that has since been called into question as one Tory MP after another has been put under investigation for alleged election fraud.
He presided over the slowest economic recovery in the history of the British Isles and dared to call it a success.
He was the laughing-stock of the international community. Remember the time he vetoed an EU treaty, so the other 27 member states forged their own agreement anyway?
He was a warmonger, selling arms and equipment to foreign powers, and joining pointless conflicts in Africa and the Middle East. Can anybody say Libya is a better place as a result of his meddling?
He increased homelessness in the UK by more than half.
He increased child poverty in the UK by more than 200,000.
His social security policies were homicidal. His bedroom tax and the work capability assessment he turned into a draconian tool of persecution have been responsible for countless premature deaths.
Now he gets to walk away, free as a bird, from all of these atrocities and more.
