One might wonder if David Cameron had tried as hard not to mess things up as he is trying to sell copies of his book, then maybe Britain wouldn’t be such a mess.

Though, if given the chance, Cameron wouldn’t hold back on his austerity programme that many people blame for the anger which led to the Brexit vote in 2016.

During an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, Cameron said that his main regret is that he didn’t do it “harder and faster”.

Shortly after being told that rough sleeping had skyrocketed during his premiership, he also said:

I do think we tried to do this in a way that was fair and reasonable.

Overall, the strategy did work.

Naturally, given that this economic strategy was condemned by the UN and is estimated by experts to have caused at least 100,000 deaths, people weren’t happy about this.

Twitter didn’t hold back.

There were also other moments that the Internet couldn’t handle. Like the strange catapult-style chairs…
