David Cameron has stood down as Member of Parliament for Witney - after 15 years in the position.
The former prime minister's resignation has attracted a huge amount of attention from people online.
So farewell David Cameron: No longer MP: The Chiltern Hundreds pays well, + you'll never have the ignominy of appearing on the back benches.

Witney shouldn't be worried whoever they get though.

Cameron resigned as Prime Minister in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union in June.
At the time Cameron said he was "very keen to continue" as MP for Witney and that it was "very much my intention" to seek re-election in the 2020 elections. Twitter users have not forgotten this and now question Cameron's motives.
Okay... Being a backbench MP is not good enough for David Cameron. Shows that his priority was never his constituents.

Would you believe it? David Cameron's not actually interested in day to day politics, and was only in it for the status.

Even comparing him to other former Prime Ministers.
Just like Tony Blair, David Cameron is off to concentrate on getting extremely wealthy #AllInItTogether eh

With Tony Blair earning millions in after-dinner speeches, David Cameron must really have given his resignation a lot of thought ?
-- Martin George (@martingeorge) September 12, 2016
Maybe David Cameron is joining the board of Tony Blair's company.

Some had some old jokes to bring up too... Particularly that one about his alleged sexual encounter with a pig's head.

At least some were sad to see the ex-PM go though.
Sorry to see my great friend @David_Cameron stepping down - he loved being Witney's MP; I know how difficult this decision has been for him

Sorry to see David Cameron standing down. He transformed the party & country. Parliament benefits from experience of office on backbenches.

I didn't agree with David Cameron on much but wish him and his family well.

And new Prime Minister Theresa May had this to say of her former leader.
