David Cameron resigns

David Cameron has announced that he is resigning as an MP, triggering a by-election.

In announcing his resignation, Cameron said that remaining a back bencher would distract from the work of Teresa May's new government. But since his resignation as Prime Minister he has mostly been ignored as the arrogant, irrelevant failed politician that he is. It will be interesting to see what is being done to his Witney constituency in the boundary review that is being announced today and whether his currently safe seat swallows up any of the nearby Lib Dem leaning areas.

Taking Witney would be a mammoth task for UKIP but one that would shake the Tories to the bone.
