Exactly, @SteveMolk @davispg. He held it together, without acrimony, until he was behind closed doors. Very British, of course.

via TweetDeck in reply to SteveMolk

And before the hard-of-thinking have a whinge, this is not a comment about politics. It’s “merely” an observation about humanity.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

To be clear, I’m not being sarcastic about the Cameron exit video. There’s a man who knows it’s over, and makes a personal, dignified exit.
