Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ex-PM David Cameron 'sorry' for creating Brexit divisions
Cameron, who served as prime minister from 2010 to 2016, spoke to The Times newspaper to promote his soon-to-be-published memoir. He had supported remaining in the EU and resigned the morning after the 2016 referendum, staying out of electoral politics and largely out of the public eye since then.

He said the Brexit referendum turned into a Conservative Party "psychodrama" and that he had been "hugely depressed" about leaving his post as prime minister.
Cameron also turned to Twitter on Saturday to draw more attention to his book and the excerpts being published in The Times, tweeting "for 3 years I have kept relatively quiet about politics. But I think it's right former PMs write their memoirs, to explain what they did and why."

I won't be buying it in paperback, either.

I'll wait for Netflix's "Brexit" series. Sorry Dave will presumably figure for 2 or 3 minutes in the pilot episode.

The forgotten man
Cameron saw the opportunity to demand guarantees for the UK's financial sector only to pump out Eurosceptic rage when EU leaders told him where to go.

"You have missed a great opportunity to be quiet," was Nikolas Sarkozy's retort to Cameron.

Several years later, after being presented with a bill for several billion euros as a result of an adjustment to the EU budget remissions, the then Prime Minister turned puce with anger. And that was before his cack-handed attempts to renegotiate the UK's membership status.

The UK to remain within a reformed EU?
