David Cameron’s speakers’ circuit profile glosses over Brexit

 “He offers lessons in leadership at an extraordinary and turbulent time in global affairs – not least on building economic strength.”

After emerging from his £25,000 garden shed to promote his patchily-selling memoir, David Cameron is heading for the lucrative speakers’ circuit. 

The former prime minister’s profile on the Washington Speakers Bureau website promotes him as “one of the most prominent global influencers of the early 21st century” (you can say that again). 

It continues: “He led the way internationally by passing the UK’s Same Sex Marriage Act; and offered constitutional referenda on Scotland’s place within the United Kingdom, and on the United Kingdom’s place within the European Union.” 

Oddly, however, it omits to mention on which side Cameron campaigned in that referendum, instead concluding: “He offers lessons in leadership at an extraordinary and turbulent time in global affairs – not least on building economic strength [and] creating inward investment across the UK and Europe.” 

The lessons, your mole presumes, are on how to destroy your leadership.

I'm a mole, innit.
