Leaders of the World David Cameron

David William Donald Cameron, the youngest leader to become a British Prime Minister in 200 years since Lord Liverpool in 1812,  is the first Conservative to become a Prime Minister of Britain since John Major departed in 1997. David Cameron is a descendant of King William IV, and was born into a wealthy English family. After taking charge of the Conservative Party, he wanted to modernise the party and get rid of its right-wing image. Cameron placed his party well for the General Election of 2010, and when Gordon Brown resigned as Prime Minister, Cameron replaced him.
Cameron was born on 9 October 1966 in London but grew up in Berkshire. He attended Eton College and then received a first class degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University in 1988. After graduating from Oxford, Cameron jumped right into politics with a job in the Research Department of the Conservative Party. Cameron entered  Parliament in 2001 as  Member of Parliament from Witney town in Oxfordshire and became leader of the Conservatives in 2005. He was seen as the new face of the Conservative Party and was often compared with Tony Blair, whose working style for the Labour Party  was quite similar a decade earlier.

In 1996 he married Samantha Cameron, 39, who worked for an upmarket stationery company, Smythson of Bond Street. The couple lived in Notting Hill before moving into Downing Street and has three children, Nancy, Arthur and Florence.

 

David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, has put climate change at the centre of his new Conservatism. He has been criticised for increasing the fuel bills of already hard-pressed British families. His critics have said that if China, India and other big polluters are not controlling the carbon emission, then why to put the burden on Britain.

Cameron explained how he wanted to ‘put aside party differences and work hard for the common good and for the national interest.’ As one of his first moves, Cameron appointed Nick Clegg, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, as the Deputy Prime Minister on 11 May 2010. Between them, the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats control 363 seats in the House of Commons, with a majority of 76 seats. On 2 June 2010, when Cameron took his first session of Prime Minister’s Questions as Prime Minister, he began by offering his support and condolences to those affected by the shootings in Cumbria. On 5 February 2011, Cameron criticised the failure of ‘state multiculturalism’, in his first speech as the Prime Minister on radicalisation and the causes of terrorism.
