David William Donald Cameron è un politico britannico, primo ministro del Regno Unito dall'11 maggio 2010. Cameron, nello stesso giorno, è stato investito anche della carica di primo Lord del Tesoro e, il giorno seguente, di ministro del Servizio Civile.

È leader dal 6 dicembre 2005 del partito Conservatore; il partito da lui guidato ha ottenuto il 36,1% dei voti alle elezioni generali del 2010, non riuscendo a conquistare la maggioranza assoluta dei seggi e formando, pertanto, un hung Parliament, cioè un "Parlamento appeso". Nonostante questo, egli è riuscito a siglare un accordo con i Liberal-Democratici di Nick Clegg per costituire un governo di coalizione. A seguito delle dimissioni di Gordon Brown, presentate l'11 maggio 2010, Cameron è stato invitato a Buckingham Palace dalla Regina Elisabetta II, per accettare l'incarico di formare un governo. Alle elezioni del 2015, nonostante i sondaggi e molti opinionisti prevedessero un secondo hung parliament, il voto popolare vide una sorprendente vittoria del Partito Conservatore, che ottenne la maggioranza assoluta con 331 seggi alla Camera dei Comuni. Cameron poté, dunque, formare un secondo governo Cameron monocolore conservatore. Con questa vittoria Cameron è divenuto il primo premier ad essere rieletto con un numero di voti maggiore che nella precedente elezione dal 1900 ed il solo primo ministro con Margaret Thatcher ad ottenere, dopo aver governato per un'intera legislatura, un numero di seggi maggiore che nella precedente elezione. Il secondo governo Cameron è, inoltre, il primo governo monocolore conservatore dal 1997.

Negli anni universitari ha fatto parte dell'esclusivo club Bullingdon, noto alla cronaca per gli episodi di devastazione di ristoranti e negozi. Per tali atti Cameron fu anche arrestato assieme all'ex sindaco londinese Johnson.

Cameron rappresenta un collegio elettorale dell'Oxfordshire, Witney.

„It is here in Britain where in one or two generations people can come with nothing and rise as high as their talent allows. It is here in Britain where success is achieved not in spite of our diversity, but because of our diversity.“

—  David Cameron
Context: It is here in Britain where different people, from different backgrounds, who follow different religions and different customs don’t just rub alongside each other but are relatives and friends; husbands, wives, cousins, neighbours and colleagues. It is here in Britain where in one or two generations people can come with nothing and rise as high as their talent allows. It is here in Britain where success is achieved not in spite of our diversity, but because of our diversity.

„I joined this party because I believe in freedom.“

—  David Cameron
Context: I joined this party because I believe in freedom. We are the only party believing that if you give people freedom and responsibility, they will grow stronger and society will grow stronger. Speech to Conservative Party Conference http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2005/oct/04/conservatives2005.conservatives3 (4 October 2005)

„One of the tasks that we clearly have is to rebuild trust in our political system. Yes, that's about cleaning up expenses, yes, that's about reforming parliament, and yes, it's about making sure people are in control and that the politicians are always their servants and never their masters.
But I believe it's also something else — it's about being honest about what government can achieve. Real change is not what government can do on its own, real change is when everyone pulls together, comes together, works together, when we all exercise our responsibilities to ourselves, our families, to our communities and to others. And I want to help try and build a more responsible society here in Britain, one where we don't just ask what are my entitlements but what are my responsibilities, one where we don't ask what am I just owed but more what can I give, and a guide for that society that those that can should and those who can't we will always help.
I want to make sure that my Government always looks after the elderly, the frail, the poorest in our country.
We must take everyone through us on some of the difficult decisions that we have ahead.
Above all it will be a Government that is built on some clear values, values of freedom, values of fairness and values of responsibility. I want us to build an economy that rewards work, I want us to build a society with stronger families and stronger communities and I want a political system that people can trust and look up to once again.“

„Britain is a special country. We have so many great advantages: a Parliamentary democracy where we resolve great issues about our future through peaceful debate; a great trading nation, with our science and arts, our engineering and our creativity, respected the world over. And while we are not perfect, I do believe we can be a model for the multi-racial, multi-faith democracy, where people can come and make a contribution and rise to the very highest that their talent allows.“

—  David Cameron

„What we are fighting, in Islamist extremism, is an ideology. It is an extreme doctrine. And like any extreme doctrine, it is subversive. At its furthest end it seeks to destroy nation-states to invent its own barbaric realm. And it often backs violence to achieve this aim – mostly violence against fellow Muslims – who don’t subscribe to its sick worldview. But you don’t have to support violence to subscribe to certain intolerant ideas which create a climate in which extremists can flourish. Ideas which are hostile to basic liberal values such as democracy, freedom and sexual equality. Ideas which actively promote discrimination, sectarianism and segregation. Ideas – like those of the despicable far right – which privilege one identity to the detriment of the rights and freedoms of others. And ideas also based on conspiracy: that Jews exercise malevolent power; or that Western powers, in concert with Israel, are deliberately humiliating Muslims, because they aim to destroy Islam. In this warped worldview, such conclusions are reached – that 9/11 was actually inspired by Mossad to provoke the invasion of Afghanistan; that British security services knew about 7/7, but didn’t do anything about it because they wanted to provoke an anti-Muslim backlash. And like so many ideologies that have existed before – whether fascist or communist – many people, especially young people, are being drawn to it. We need to understand why it is proving so attractive.“
