Pig farmer or 007? Twitter gives Cameron career advice as legacy crumbles
Cameron, who led the failed Remain campaign, announced he would leave 10 Downing Street by October after confirmation that the UK had voted to exit the EU by a 52-48 percent.
His legacy as the man who oversaw his country’s move to leave the EU is now assured.
His resignation has been met with a mixture of derision for quitting so quickly and a critique of his “awful legacy”.

Calls had been made for Cameron’s resignation back in April after the Panama Papers leaks exposed his late father’s offshore dealings.
A number of massive rallies took place in London calling for him to step down and for an end to the strict austerity measures implemented during his tenure.
His promise to fix a “broken Britain” ending with a divided country after Scotland and Northern Ireland both voted to remain in the EU. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has indicated that a second Scottish Independence Referendum is highly likely.
Scotland will seek independence now. Cameron's legacy will be breaking up two unions. Neither needed to happen. https://t.co/4MDj7pndcq— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) June 24, 2016

#DavidCameron leaves a legacy of economic meltdown, xenophobia and poor people killing themselves. He must be very proud.— Diane Messias (@NiceEtoile) June 24, 2016
While Cameron may not have had much time to contemplate his future following the shock vote, the Twitterati have wasted no time in putting forward possible new career options for him under the hashtag #SuggestAJobForCameron.
Somewhat predictably, given last year’s ‘piggate’ controversy, there is a lot of enthusiasm for the prime minister to make a move into the pig industry.
Pig farmer, butcher and McDonald’s trainee are just some of the ideas being mooted.
Others are being considerably more optimistic about the Conservative leader’s skill set and think Cameron even has what it takes to be the next 007.
