‘Doo doo doo doo, right, good’: Cameron hums merry tune after announcing departure (VIDEO)
Cameron told reporters he would offer his resignation to the Queen on Wednesday afternoon and Theresa May would be in Number 10 that evening. He then turned his back to the camera with a weight lifted off his shoulders and began to hum a little ditty, apparently unaware his mic was still live.
The outgoing Tory leader can be heard humming happily, “Doo doo doo doo” before ending his tune abruptly, saying, “Right,” and closing the door behind him, adding, “Good.”
Cameron hums a posh, aimless "Doo doo doo doo" post-resignation. His one chance to prove he's a Smiths fan ruined.— Liz Buckley (@liz_buckley) July 11, 2016
Cameron’s bizarre signoff has attracted huge attention online with speculation rife by the Twitterati around what the tune actually was.

Some described it as “quintessentially English” and compared its style to something Winnie the Pooh might sing on an adventure.
We've had the West Wing theme tune and a "Winnie-the-Pooh style hum" - any other suggestions? https://t.co/hsxQ4vavAr— Richard James (@richjamesuk) July 11, 2016
And some even came up with tutorials on how to sing Cameron's “swansong,” as one Twitter user dubbed it.
