Personal Life

David Cameron is the son of a stockbroker and grew up in Newbury, Berkshire, England. He married Samantha Cameron, better known as Samantha Gwendoline Cameron (née Sheffield). Samantha and David were married in the Church of St Augustine of Canterbury, in East Hendred, Oxfordshire, on 1 June 1996. Five years later, David became a Member of Parliament. David and Samantha went on to have four children together. They welcomed their firstborn son, Ivan Reginald Ian, into the world in 2002, followed by their eldest daughter, Nancy Gwen Beatrice Cameron, in 2004. The couple’s second son, Arthur Elwen, was born in 2006, followed by the birth of Florence Rose Endellion Cameron on 24 August 2010. However, in 2009, their firstborn son Ivan, who suffered from the rare Ohtahara syndrome, died aged six.

Civic Activities

Cameron was not involved in political activities as a student, but was a member of the Bullingdon Club in Oxford, known to have a strong interest in drinking alcohol and playing lottery. He has always avoided commenting on this period of his life and whether or not he has ever used drugs.

Political Positions

After graduation, David Cameron joined the Conservative Research Department (CRD) and became Norman Lamont’s special adviser, followed by Michael Howard. Howard, a British politician and member of the Conservative Party in Parliament, is the man who discovered David Cameron’s talent as an influential member of the party in the mid-1990s. When Cameron entered the race in 2005 to replace Howard as leader of the Conservative Party, a small number of party members turned to him, who at the time was the young spokesman for education in the shadow government. He was elected to the UK Parliament, giving him the opportunity to become the party’s leader. Loyal supporters of the Conservative Party changed their minds when David Cameron delivered a poignant and exciting speech at one of the party’s most important rallies. His aim was to change the image of the Conservative Party, which many described as ruthless. He was also the head of legal affairs at the Carlton Association for seven years. Cameron was elected to the Oxfordshire constituency in Whitney in 2001. Two years later, he became the spokesman for the opposition, and soon became the party’s policy coordinator during the 2005 general election.

Cameron became known as a young, moderate candidate who was accepted by young voters and won the 2005 Conservative leadership election. Although the Conservatives were pushed back shortly after Gordon Brown became prime minister, they were firmly ahead of the Labour Party in opinion polls under Cameron. In the 6 May 2010 general election, the Conservatives won more seats, but as they did not reach the quorum, a minority parliament was formed and suspended. Following Gordon Brown’s resignation, Cameron was appointed prime minister to form an alliance with the Liberal Democrats Party. In 2015, he became prime minister again and formed his second cabinet. David Cameron resigned as UK Prime Minister on 13 July 2016 following the announcement of the outcome of the referendum on UK’s exit from the EU. After his resignation, Theresa May became Prime Minister of the UK.
