Not much that is positive.
Doubt that he would have been able to lead the Conservatives to much general election success if Blair had remained Labour leader.

In terms of winning elections for Labour and years served in office, good.
Labour's longest serving PM and one of their most effective party leaders in terms of general election wins with an overall majority.
I'm not a Labour Party supporter.

I alway thought David Cameron had the right image of a Prime Minister. He was always assertive, smart and professional. Even if you leave the shady allegations aside, he's what you want your PM to look like when representing the country.

I know some people will always remember him for triggering the Brexit vote, but he won a Conservative majority on the pledge of holding the referendum and there was clear appetite to have that debate. Cameron made the Conservatives electable after the misery of Gordon Brown's government.

Well that's the rumour - but I don't know why that's all people remember of a PM who served the country for seven years though. A hell of a lot happened in those seven years but the pig story keeps cropping up

Did fantastic things for the Conservative Party. Britain was in an optimistic and pretty cheerful place throughout most of his time in office. Economic decisions were largely good in hindsight, made significant (and positive) reforms in areas like schools.

I think he got a bit too arrogant over the EU referendum and assumed victory would be easier than it was.

He will be viewed in history kindly. Although he increased poverty greatly, under him a nasty welfare reform took place, and the EU referendum was lost when he did not openly campaign for remain.

The one thing other than the referendum he may be most remembered for is same-sex marriage.

Compared to Boris Johnson the serial killer in all but name and Theresa May who lost control/support of her party, he will be viewed kindly.

I consider Cameron to be a fairly good PM. I broadly support most of what he did and his performance was broadly competent. He was also electorally successful winning over 120 seats and 2 referenda.

As others have said though, he perhaps got a little arrogant in terms of how he viewed the EU referendum (but in the end it's worked out quite well for the party).
