David Cameron, Britain’s former prime minister, announced Monday he was resigning his seat in Parliament, thereby leaving the British political establishment.
The announcement comes only weeks after his resignation from the top job in the wake of the country’s vote to leave the European Union (EU), which he had campaigned against. It is a surprise to many, after he had stated he would remain in his position as Member of Parliament (MP) until the next elections, in 2020.
Indeed, there has been widespread speculation in British media as to the motives that may lie behind Mr. Cameron’s decision, coupled with consideration of what his legacy will be. In this, there seems to be near-universal agreement on one thing that will forever be tied to him and his premiership: the Brexit.
