David Cameron was elected Conservative leader in 2005, promising to modernise the party following its three successive electoral defeats. He became Prime Minister in 2010, forming Britain's first coalition government in 70 years, at a moment of economic crisis, and went on to win the first outright Conservative majority for 23 years at the 2015 general election. In 'For the Record', Cameron explains how the governments he led transformed the UK economy while implementing a modern, compassionate agenda that included reforming education and welfare, legalising gay marriage, honouring the UK's commitment to overseas aid and spearheading environmental policies.

He comes across as a little defensive about the EU referendum but nonetheless an interesting insiders view. Obama comes out well as does Merkel & Rutte. Sarkozy, Bettel & other europeans less so. More guarded about UK politicians.
