David Cameron will resign as Prime Minister on Wednesday saying that he leaves Britain a “stronger country” with a “thriving economy and more chances to get on in life”.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Mr Cameron says “it has been a privilege to serve the country I love” as he attempts to shift the focus of his legacy away from Brexit.
Mr Cameron told The Telegraph: “I came into Downing Street to confront our problems as a country and lead people through difficult decisions so that together we could reach better times.
“As I leave today, I hope that people will see a stronger country, a thriving economy, and more chances to get on in life. It has been a privilege to serve the country I love.”
He will address the Commons for the final time as Prime Minister where he will highlight his record as a reforming Conservative who introduced same-sex marriage and commitment to spending on foreign aid.
He will then make a speech in Downing Street standing alongside his wife, Samantha, and their three children before leaving No 10 for the final time before heading to Buckingham Palace to formally resign.
On Tuesday he chaired his final Cabinet meeting where Theresa May and George Osborne led tributes to an “astonishing” Prime Minister who has left the UK in the “best place” for the future.
