David Cameron: I intend to carry on as backbench MP after premiership


David Cameron has signalled his determination to carry on as a backbench MP after he stands down as Prime Minister.

Mr Cameron announced last year that this will be his final term in No 10 and he will not be premier after the next general election in 2020.

But speaking on BBC Oxford, he confirmed that he would be standing again as MP for Witney.

"That is very much my intention," he said.

"I love being MP for Witney and am very keen to continue. I draw huge strength from being a Member of Parliament in Oxfordshire."
