Being a loser wasn't the legacy that Cameron wanted. He basked in his reputation for effortless success, of never doing anything as vulgar as trying but always winning. And whereas he saw his loyalty to his chums as Etonian honour, the rest of us saw it as crooked and corrupt favouritism.
Unlike Blair, an insecure little man avaricious for wealth to prop his insecurity, for Cameron it's never been about money. He swims in a milieu of multi millionaires and takes money, privilege and exclusivity for granted. It was always power and respect and the trappings of office - the red boxes, bon-mots swapped with the Sovereign, armoured limos, the State aircraft and the red carpets and doors always being opened for him. As he returned to Parliament an abject and almost anonymous back-bencher with his old-man's bag amongst a scrum of SPADs and secretaries and having to open his own doors and walk from the car park it was clear that this was more than he could endure.
Cameron was always a dilettante politician, a glib persuasive PR man with qualities of leadership but with one fatal flaw - what used to be termed LMF. Lack of Moral Fibre. We're well rid of him.
