Quick Reference

(b. 1966).

Politician. Educated at Eton and Brasenose, Oxford, Cameron was returned to Parliament for Witney in 2001 and became leader of the Conservative Party in 2005. He has endeavoured to reposition the party and rebrand its image, paying particular attention to environmental and green issues. His performances in the House of Commons have been spirited but critics have accused him of trendiness and vagueness.
