He says he’s “bored” and maybe that’s true – I find it hard to believe he’s sprayed all his millions up the wall in two years and now needs more cash.
Whatever the reason, David Cameron’s announcement that he’d like to return to mainstream politics has produced a strong response from Labour politicians, and who can blame them?
Just when you thought politics couldn't get anymore bizarre. No David please stay in retirement you caused enough damage last time 😩 https://t.co/DHhXwWTadO

I think this may be a good thing.
Bear with me: Mr Cameron’s sense of entitlement is palpable. He thinks he’ll be able to hope back on board the Westminster gravy-train, in exactly the way Boris Johnson did after his gig as London mayor went south. That would show that Conservative politics is utterly corrupt and they parachute candidates into seats according to their position in the Tory hierarchy, rather than their suitability for the job.
Not only that – he thinks he’ll be able to grab a place at the Cabinet table straight away, too. This is a man who has done untold amounts of damage to the structure of the United Kingdom, and he thinks he’ll be allowed back in to do an untold amount more.
Probably the most visible example of this – and it’s saying a lot, considering the dismantling of the National Health Service for the benefit of private profit-makers and the ongoing genocide of the sick and disabled – is Brexit.
Let’s not forget that this is the forced removal of the UK from the European Union, to the great weakening of our economy and further lowering of our living standards, brought on by selfish money-grubbers who think they can make a profit and by armchair warriors who deluded themselves into thinking they were delivering a blow to the Tories.
And why did Cameron order the referendum that led to this upheaval? Because he thought the vote would support remaining in the EU and it would finally stop his backbench Eurosceptics from grumbling about it.
That didn’t turn out so well. The vote went the other way and Conservative backbenchers are still at war with each other. And he has created deep divisions amongst the population.
If he comes back to mainstream politics (and I’ve just heard from the BBC’s Politics Live that it was just idle talk and isn’t likely to happen), then he’ll spend the whole time running into people like Danny Dyer:

That is a mild response to Cameron’s calamitous premiership!
And it is the reason I think he should try re-entering mainstream politics.
It will give us all a chance to put this jumped-up little toff back in his hole – for good.
