David Cameron Hummed A Tune Despite Stiff Upper Lip At Step Down Announcement
July 11, 2016
What’s the first thing you do after resigning as prime minister of the United Kingdom? If you’re David Cameron, you start your music career.
Cameron was caught on a hot mic humming a song while walking back to 10 Downing Street after announcing that Theresa May would become prime minister once he resigned. But all anyone could talk about was Cameron’s musical debut.
British classical music station Classic FM even took the time to turn his song into sheet music titled “Cameron’s Lament.”

And Gawker provided an EDM remix.
The Independent speculated he was humming the theme from “The West Wing,” but many people figured he was just relieved to be finished dealing with the fallout from Brexit.
I'm guessing that this hum from David Cameron is 'I'm bloody glad this is all over. Over to you Theresa May' pic.twitter.com/evV7rwn1oc— Joseph Willits (@josephwillits) July 11, 2016
@David_Cameron If I was leaving a job that came with as much stress as being PM must do, I'd hum a happy tune too.— Susan Martin (@SoozMartin) July 11, 2016
The David Cameron hum is basically me when I'm trying to ignore people.— Matt Bentley (@JustMattBentley) July 11, 2016
Cameron will be able to hum as much as he wants after Wednesday, when he will officially resign.
