I read somewhere that he is writing a book about his time in office. Will you be interested in purchasing a copy if it gets published?

If you want to buy a copy look in the multiple Poundlands in Romford.
A couple of days after its released I'll wager the shelves will be heaving with them.
As no one will buy it they'll still be heaving with them in 50 years time.

Perhaps Cameron and Bliar could publish a book jointly.
Title Our years in Office.
Working title What the fuck did we do?

The news keeps getting better.

Nick Clegg hints he could follow David Cameron out of Westminster by standing down as MP

The ex-deputy PM is deciding whether to quit his job at the next election - a day after his Coalition pal waved goodbye
 
Nick Clegg could follow David Cameron out of Westminster after he refused to rule out standing down as an MP.

The ex-deputy PM revealed he is deciding whether to quit his job at the next election - be it in 2020 or next year.

His admission comes just a day after his humiliated Coalition ally left Parliament because he feared being a "distraction".

The pair governed together for five years and famously cosied up before the world's media in the Downing Street rose garden.

Just six years later Mr Cameron is gone, his allies ousted, and the Liberal Democrats ' 57 seats have been cut to just eight.


All credibility lost!

Cull of Cameron's cronies continues: Rona Fairhead is latest appointee shown the door as Theresa May asks BBC chairman to reapply for her own £110,000-a-year job
BBC chairman Rona Fairhead steps down  

The head of the BBC Trust, Rona Fairhead (pictured), has resigned after Theresa May asked her to re-apply for her own £110,000-a-year post. Ms Fairhead decided to step aside just FOUR MONTHS after David Cameron asked her to stay on as chair of the regulator amid a large-scale shake-up of the corporation. The businesswoman said she decided to not put her name forward as the head of the new governing board - which will come into existence in the New Year - so there could be a 'clean break'.

Lets hope for a cull of councilors soon.The likes of clegg and Cameron having to go is a result of the EU exit many in the house simply have no idea how to govern and the civil service has no idea after 50 years of having it easy in the EU.
Revolutions are always verbose.

Money for old rope.

David Cameron quietly bags £17,000 payoff for quitting as Prime Minister

The ex-PM took three months' worth of Number 10 salary when he left in humiliation after losing his EU referendum battle
 
David Cameron bagged a £17,000 payoff just for quitting as Prime Minister, it was revealed today.

The ex-PM took three months' worth of Number 10 salary when he left in humiliation after losing his EU referendum battle.

Whitehall sources confirmed the payment - £17,125 to be exact - was made but said it was because Mr Cameron wanted to be paid at the same rate as other ministers.

That means he will not receive his gold-plated pension until he actually reaches the retirement age of 65, they claimed.

But British taxpayers are likely to fork out a lot more before then on behalf of the 49-year-old quitting MP.

Every year he will be entitled to £115,000 to pay for staff and office costs for whatever he chooses to do next, as long as it is in "public life".

The Public Duties Costs Allowance launched in 1991, is available to all ex-PMs and was claimed by Tony Blair , Gordon Brown and John Major in 2013-14.

And it seems we already have a hint of what that public life will be after Mr Cameron signed up one of the nation's top literary agents to flog his memoirs.

The big society.

David Cameron has accepted his first job since quitting as Prime Minister following the Brexit vote.

The 50-year-old, who resigned in June after six years in Number 10, has taken an unpaid role at the National Citizens Service Trust.

The charity implements his flagship Big Society policy, helping 15 to 17-year-olds take part in volunteering and social development bootcamps.

Writing in The Daily Telegraph, Mr Cameron said: "When I look back over six years as Prime Minister, one of my proudest achievements is the creation of National Citizen Service.

"I often get stopped in the street by parents who tell me what a difference NCS has made in the lives of their children; and I regularly receive letters from young people who have so enjoyed taking part.

"From the pilot projects that I began as Leader of the Opposition to the full-scale programme that we have today, more than 275,000 people have taken part in what has become the fastest-growing youth movement of its kind in the world."

Mr Cameron is set to become the chairman of the charity's patrons board, which will oversee expansion plans.

He added: "I am delighted that my first role in my life after politics is to continue my association with this fantastic programme by becoming chairman of NCS Patrons, bringing together a senior cross-party and cross-sector group of patrons and ambassadors who can help NCS to reach more youngsters."

I heard of blowing your own trumpet but he's got the whole brass section there. most people in the 'big society' don't shout about it.

David Cameron has been exposed as one of the worst Prime Ministers in modern history.

The former PM fared worse than Gordon Brown and only Sir Anthony Eden and Sir Alec Douglas-Home were rated worse
 
David Cameron was rated third worst PM in modern history
   
David Cameron is today exposed as one of the worst Prime Ministers in modern history by political experts.

The former Tory boss was rated third from bottom in the table of post-war leaders - but would have been classed as the biggest failure based on rankings for only his second term.


Mr Cameron fared worse than Labour’s Gordon Brown , the premier he regularly mocked while opposition leader, in the survey of academics who specialise in politics and contemporary British history.

Only Sir Anthony Eden, whose reputation was left in tatters by his handling of the Suez crisis, and Sir Alec Douglas-Home, who only lasted a year, were ranked lower than Mr Cameron in the list of 13 PMs who have served since 1945.

Leeds University professor Kevin Theakston, who carried out the research, said: “For all his achievements as a successful coalition Prime Minister, David Cameron’s reputation and place in history seems destined to be defined by Brexit and his calling and losing the referendum.”

Nearly nine out of 10 said June’s European Union referendum was his greatest failure, with one claiming it was the worst defeat of any PM “since Lord North lost America”.

Pros Theakston added: “Academic opinion, as reflected in our survey, is currently pretty damning.

“But reputations can wax and wane as subsequent events, the passage of time and new evidence change perspectives.

“Depending on how Brexit works out, future historians and political scientists may come to a different verdict on Mr Cameron’s premiership and his place in the league table of prime ministers.”

The survey follows similar polls in 2004 and 2010.

Labour’s Clement Attlee was again judged the most successful PM, scoring 8.5. He was followed by Margaret Thatcher on 7.2 and Tony Blair on 6.7.

Winston Churchill received only 5.4 because the assessment is based on his 1950s government rather than his wartime leadership.

Mr Brown was rated 4.6 while Sir Alec Douglas-Home scored 3.8 and Sir Anthony came bottom on 2.4.

Mr Cameron scored an embarrassing four - but when asked to rate his stints at No 10 separately he received 5.6 for the coalition years and just 2.1 for his Downing Street reign since his 2015 election victory.

Prof Theakston said: “This would place him at the bottom of the league table - as a worse prime minster than Anthony Eden, long seen as the biggest post-war failure in Number 10.”

Academics were also asked to rate the impact each of the last five prime ministers had on society, the economy, foreign policy and Britain’s role in the world, their political party, and democracy.

Mr Cameron was the only one to receive a negative rating in each area.

The latest blow to the ex-PM’s battered reputation came as he vowed to continue his flagship push for a “Big Society” in his first role after quitting politics.

He will help oversee the expansion of the National Citizen Service to help more teenagers gain life skills, as chairman of NCS Patrons.

Writing in the Telegraph, he said: “From industry to the arts, from sport to the media, from local communities to the wider public sector, we need everyone involved in a national mission to make NCS a normal part of growing up that can give every generation a greater sense of purpose, optimism and belonging.”
