AH/JW3 David Cameron in conversation
With Simon Sebag Montefiore
David Cameron was born in 1966 and attended Eton College and Oxford University. He became the Member of Parliament for Witney in Oxfordshire in 2001. Four years later he was elected leader of the Conservative Party where he implemented a programme of modernisation. After the 2010 election he became Prime Minister of a coalition government, which turned around the UK economy and radically reformed public services. In 2015 he won the first outright Conservative majority for 23 years. A year later, he resigned after the referendum he called on Britain's membership of the European Union resulted in a vote to leave.
David lives in London and Oxfordshire with his wife Samantha and their three children, Nancy, Elwen and Florence. His focuses since leaving office include international development, youth volunteering and technology-driven sectors such as fin-tech, biotech and AI. He maintains his commitment to defeating dementia as president of Alzheimer’s Research UK.
David will be in conversation with prizewinning historian and bestselling novelist Simon Sebag Montefiore, discussing his new book, For the Record, an account of his time in office. He will also be talking politics in Britain and the rest of the world.
