David Cameron has, for right-wing Conservatives, been a disappointment

We are to have a new Prime Minister today.

It is an exciting moment.

David Cameron has, for right-wing Conservatives, been a disappointment.  The disillusion began when he reneged on holding a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.  I know it was already signed by the time he took office, but he could have held a symbolic and consultative referendum.

Instead he chose to renege on his promise, in what became a slap in the face for the Eurosceptics.

And not surprisingly the Eurosceptics slapped his face back, and went on slapping it until he had had enough and petulantly resigned after saying he would stay on whatever the referendum result.  So on your way Mr Cameron.  I don't wish to sound ungracious but on the whole you will not be missed.
