Jun 24,2016 British Prime Minister David Cameron resigns after the UK votes to leave the EU.

Jun 24, 2016 Prime minister David Cameron resigns after UK votes to leave European Union.

David Cameron has resigned, bringing an abrupt end to his six-year premiership, after the British public took the momentous decision to reject his entreaties and turn their back on the European Union. Just a year after he clinched a surprise majority in the general election, a visibly emotional Cameron, standing outside Number 10 on Friday morning alongside his wife, Samantha, said: "The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered." .
The prime minister campaigned hard in the divisive referendum on Britain's relationship with the EU, appearing at hundreds of public events up and down the country to argue that Brexit would be an act of "economic self-harm". But a frustrated electorate used the poll to reject the status quo and, as the Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, described it, "stick two fingers up" at Britain's politicians..
"I was absolutely clear about my belief that Britain is stronger, safer and better off inside the EU. I made clear the referendum was about this, and this alone, not the future of any single politician, including myself. But the British people made a different decision to take a different path. As such I think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction," Cameron said.

Cameron said it would be best for his successor to negotiate the terms of Britain's exit - and to trigger article 50 of the Lisbon treaty, which begins the formal process of withdrawal, adding that he had already discussed his intentions with the Queen.
The prime minister promised to stay on until the autumn, to "steady the ship"; but suggested a new leader should be in place by the start of the Conservative party's conference in October.

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced his resignation from his seat in parliament "with immediate effect". The ruling Conservative Party electedTheresa May to lead the country after Cameron resigned following his failed campaign to persuade voters to remain in the European Union in a June 23 referendum.
From world leader to the wilderness in just under three months.
David Cameron, the former British Prime Minister, has announced he will stand down as a member of Parliament for his constituency of Witney immediately, triggering a by-election. Cameron, who has served in Parliament since 2001, stepped down as Prime Minister in the aftermath of June's Brexit vote in which the UK decided to leave the European Union. He had previously said that he was "keen to continue" in his role as a backbench MP afterstepping away from Downing Street but has since decided such a role is untenable.

David Cameron Resigns as MP with 'Immediate Effect'

David Cameron is standing down as MP for Witney, triggering a by-election in the Oxfordshire seat. Mr Cameron's decision comes two months after he quit as Prime Minister on July 13 in the wake of defeat in the EU referendum.

Cameron, who would be earning GBP.74,962 for his work as an MP rather than the GBP.143,462 current salary for being prime minister, did not announce details of what he would do next but spoke of hoping to "still contribute in terms of public service and to the country". He said he would "start to build a life outside Westminster" and noted "I'm only 49" There was immediate speculation that he could earn considerable sums if he followed the path of predecessors, including Tony Blair, to take corporate money from directorships, lucrative book deals and speechmaking. Ministers that step down have a period of two years after their resignation in which they would need to seek approval from an advisory committee on any paid or unpaid appointments if they want to take any corporate roles. It is to remember that Cameron's name was in "Panama Paers", maintaining the offshore funds in tax heavens.
