Almost as tragic as Owen Patterson falling off his horse

David Cameron vanishes as Brexit turns nasty

Anxious about his safety as public anger about Brexit grows, David Cameron – who decided to hold the EU referendum – has more or less gone into hiding.

“He sees this as a difficult year and has battened down the hatches,” a close associate of the former prime minister admits to Mandrake. “He’s put back the publication of his autobiography until next year as the last thing he wants to do right now is any promotional tours. He’s also seen to it that no contact addresses or telephone numbers for him are publicly available. His website has been under construction now for a very long time and is likely to remain so.”

Shortly after leaving Downing Street and quitting as an MP, Cameron, set up a private company called The Office of David Cameron Ltd and listed Laurence Mann, his former political secretary, as its director.

When I managed to track down Mann, he confirmed that Cameron was intentionally keeping a low profile. “He is really not making public interventions until his book is published, likely next year,” he said.

Mann, who picked up a CBE during Cameron’s time in office, is the last of the old guard still to be in the bunker with him. He witnessed a new mortgage that the Camerons took out on their £3.5 million Notting Hill townhouse just days before the EU referendum. Earlier this year, he accompanied his boss on a controversial trip to Bahrain for a meeting with Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa. http://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/top-sto ... -1-5522165


If Cameron was receiving threats of violence from Remoaners we would have heard about it by now. This is probably more like Cameron's day that has led to his retreat

From the same article.
No names, no pack-drill, but the questions Mandrake publicly asked John Humphrys about how much money he makes each year writing for the pro-Brexit Daily Mai
I didn't know that he did.

Humphrys contributes occasional articles railing at the modern world of mobile phones, poor grammar and piped music in Marks and Sparks

Its clearly not sparkling creative output that earns freelancers freebies from Dacre
Mandrake publicly asked John Humphrys about how much money he makes each year writing for the pro-Brexit Daily Mail – and how many times he’s gone to watch rugby matches at Twickenham with its editor, Paul Dacre – has created quite a rumpus on the Today programme.

“Let’s just say there have been discussions about it and attempts have been made to persuade John to talk to you,” says my source. “John is stubborn, however. He has said he doesn’t see how it’s anyone’s business.”

If he feels he's at risk, how will publishing his book make him any safer?

Cameron really is damned for all eternity, isn't he? Unleashing the Brexit shitfest is literally the only thing the superficial, unserious little toad is going to be remembered for.

What does appointing a lunatic as education secretary say about Cameron’s judgment? And then fucked off to let him run the country.
David Cameron brands Michael Gove a ‘lunatic’
David Cameron blames Michael Gove not Boris Johnson for his defeat in the EU referendum and the loss of his political career and will launch a withering attack on him in his memoirs, The Sunday Times has learnt.

The former prime minister has told friends Gove is “mad” and behaved like a “lunatic” in the run-up to the vote and he had no idea his friend would betray him by backing the “leave” campaign. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news ... -_-TWITTER

Cameron was apparently spotted at the rather aptly-named Wilderness Festival this weekend.
PR bloke. Will have calculated that that will just make him even more lovable that he already isn't.

If he had any shame he'd never go out again, live off takeaways and concentrate on his book about what cunts Johnsons and Gove are.
That's the thing though. He sees it as just another job. Fun while it lasted, pity he never got to stay on longer. Still, more time for the kids and that.
