What a monumental fuck up.

His legacy now Is destroying the United Kingdom and perhaps the whole EU.

That's all he will be remembered for. Same with Blair and the Iraq war.

Nice one.

Agree, he must be gutted, not for himself but for what he has done.

For Brexiters, it is fortunate that we had such an incompetent Prime Minister. But for all the civil servants, the banks, the CBI, the EU political class, the global elite, the movers and shakers etc who had worked for 40 years to build their project, Cameron has brought it all to an abrupt end.

One man has ended the whole game.

It was actually the British people who ended it, but Cameron gave us the chance.

He probably will go down as making the biggest blunder of a peacetime pm.

Yes, he has earned his place in the history books for sure.

' the biggest blunder of a peacetime pm'

40 years work gone in 24 hours. Boris made a speech praising him as a good Prime Minister. I can't remember what the over the top words were, but I doubt many senior bigwigs would agree.

What a risk to take! Killing your country to save your own job.

He knew what was at stake if people voted leave.

I would be suicidal if I was him right now.

None of them ever dreamed we would leave. They all though Project Fear would scare us and the conveyor belt of bankers and bigwigs would swing our vote.

It is not just Cameron to blame. You have to wonder who the wallies are that surround him, the best and the brightest.

I think he'll be wondering what the fuck he has done, I almost feel a bit sorry for him

"the conveyor belt of bankers"

For once I agree with you.

The banks do not have the power they once did, and so could not sway this one by manipulating the market.

He will just retire quietly for a bit.
He has plenty of money and property.

I am sure he is feeling pretty dreadful and foolish right now, but he will be fine.

When the dust is settled he will write book, appear on chat shows etc.

There are loads of people who will be worse off.

Neither Cameron nor Corbyn have engaged the people enough on the benefits of Europe. The have brushed some very real problems under the carpet. I feel its time for new leadership.

If the remain camp want a second referendum not to leave then they need to do it by the ballot box, just like the leave camp got their opportunity for a referendum by the ballot box.

I don't feel sorry for him.

He was an arrogant man. It came and got him in the most awful way but he should have learned.

Politics has become so out of touch that many people have lost faith and believe they can't make a difference

The EU referendum was something which they felt they could make a difference about. Hence the huge turnout.

So I can only hope that the only good which will come of this will be a rethink of politics.

I do not feel sorry for him. I do not believe that he was really 'remain'. I believe he was already planning on leaving politics hence his acceptance of a place at Eton for his son. He has done some dreadful deal to stand aside... but yes his legacy will be terrible.

Neither Cameron nor Corbyn have engaged the people enough on the benefits of Europe. The have brushed some very real problems under the carpet.

Also neither party over their years have invested in this country, squandering tax and not improving services, which have lead to all these pressures on services. So here we are with the knee jerk reaction blaming the symptoms not the cause.

Project fear is quickly turning into Project reality.
