David Cameron Thinks Loads Of Things Are The 'Right Thing To Do' As Well As Quitting

Explaining his decision to quit as an MP today, David Cameron said it was the “right thing to do” - which has long been his catchphrase.

The former prime minister said:

“In a way, there’s a link to the decision to resign as PM. The country made a decision, a decision I advised against, but nonetheless the decision has been made and I want the government to successfully pursue that decision and get it right. As a result, not being a backbencher but leaving parliament is the right thing to do.”

As the video above shows, quitting parliament having said he would remain an MP is the latest in a long list of things that Cameron felt were the “right thing to do” - including expanding bombing to Syria and the drone strike against the Isis militant known as Jihadi John.
