    if he's here next year i'll be surprised hell to be fair i'm surprised he's here now what with panama papers, pigsgate, annoying the house of lords and brutal cuts that made IDS quit his position with that and that the risk of messing up the eu referendum is enough

    hopefully not long but whatever happens, the damage he and his team have done will last for generations. #skinnerforPM

    I'd say 2019, to give the next leader time to settle in before the 2020 election.

    I think he will use his full term, so 2020.
    And I hope next leader of the Torries is not Osborne.

    He himself said that he didn't want to finish another term, and there's the chance that he would resign in the case of a vote to leave Europe: it would be a major embarrassment to him. If we "vote" to stay, he will likewise assume it as a victory and could leave then, on a "high".

    He has to go by early 2019 for his replacement to settle in before the next election

    I suspect he'll be overthrown by his own party whatever the referendum result, so 2016 or 2017...

    Hopefuly he and Merkel will both be gone soon.

    I just dread they will be replaced with equally inept, self-centered, power-hungry morons.

    He'll go in 2019 and we probably won't know who his successor will be until then, way too early to call. The field might be narrower than usual because really the new leader needs to already have a name for themselves, but there are more in that position than May Gove and Boris, keep an eye on some of the smaller cabinet members and former cabinet members.

    Unlikely, particularly if we leave. Foreign secretary goes to a eurosceptic that can do the negotiations necessary well, Cameron stays in to maintain stability, goes in summer of 2019 for his successor to be named at the party conference.

    See above, if we vote to leave he will likely make it to 19

    If we vote to leave then there is a high chance that he will have to step down pretty quickly. If we vote to stay (which I think is more likely) then he could, very well, make it to 2019.

    Everything I know about David Cameron says he's not known for his integrity.

    He almost certainly said that for fear he's going to lose the EU referendum so he can just say 'I was going to resign anyway'.

    If he wins he'll probably stay on longer.

    nah - I'd agree with you if he said it once in a shady context, but he's stated it multiple times now, including within the house of commons, so I doubt he's going to be able to live it down

    If there is Brexit, he will be gone before the next Autumn Statement.

    Miraculously if the remain campaign wins which I doubt they will, then it will be how soon his party decides to throw him out which won't be too long away looking at all the power hungry monsters about.

    The last thing the country need in the case of an exit vote is a leadership battle to become PM

    Not being funny but remain is highly likely to win and I say this as someone who is cast iron to vote brexit.
