Who is David Cameron?

David Cameron is the 77th and current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He is the leader of the Conservative Party and became leader of the country on May 11, 2010, after Cameron led the Conservatives to their best performance in the general election since 1992. The Conservatives secured the largest number of seats but were still 20 seats short of an overall majority, resulting in the nation's first hung parliament since February 1974. Cameron and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg worked out an agreed Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition, enabling Queen Elizabeth II to invite Cameron to form a government. At age 43, Cameron became the youngest British Prime Minister to serve since 1812.

Cameron was born on October 9, 1966, in London. He has one brother and two sisters. Cameron's preparation for the political field can be traced back to his college days at the University of Oxford, where he studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics. His professional work in politics includes working for the Conservative Research Department, being tapped as Special Advisor to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and serving as a Member of Parliament. He also worked as the Director of Corporate Affairs at Carlton Communications, a media company.




Cameron and his wife, Samantha Gwendoline Sheffield, whom he married in 1996, have had three children. Their first child, Ivan, was born with a rare combination of cerebral palsy and a form of severe epilepsy, and he died in 2009 at the age of six. The Cameron's also have a daughter, Nancy Gwen, and another son, Arthur Elwen. The Cameron's are reportedly expecting another child, to be born in September 2010.

Fun facts about Cameron include that he is a direct descendant of George I, George II, George III, and King William IV and his mistress, and that he is left-handed.

"I came into politics because I love this country," Cameron said in his first speech as Prime Minister. "I think its best days still lie ahead, and I believe deeply in public service."
