According to the latest Brexit news, David Cameron will step down as Prime Minister to join the House of Commons. This will occur in 3 months. I am on my phone, so I cannot provide a link at the moment.

Tis true, and there was nothing left for the PM to do but fall upon his own sword after Thursday's turn of events.

Brexit: David Cameron to quit after UK votes to leave EU - BBC News



It is the nature of the British parliamentary system; the PM is only in place long as he or she has the backing of their party and or can form a government otherwise. Going into the vote Mr. Cameron's party is split with each side not being very nice to the other. Harsh things were said and it now seems the PM feels he cannot effectively lead. How could he with all those knives aiming for his back.


Mr. Cameron tried to play an "Obama" by taking things to the people with his referendum vote; he lost and that is now that.

Former London Mayor Boris Johnson is the odds on favorite to replace him. Agree?

Guess he sees he won't be part of the new world order. So sad. Don't let the door hit you on the a**!

From London Mayor to PM? That's their version of Donald Trump.

David Cameron is another Immature Weak Leader . He didn't get his way, so he quit. Instead of leading his country through this. He quits. FAILURE!

Absolutely wrong. In Europe, they have honor when they lose in politics. They quit because the people rejected their ideas. It's what should happen in the US too instead of trying to then push through an initiative via executive action or the courts.
