David Cameron is quitting as an MP with immediate effect.
The former Prime Minister made the shock announcement today just weeks after promising to stay in Parliament until 2020.
The Witney MP quit 10 Downing Street - which he also swore he wouldn't do - on June 24 after a humiliating finish on the losing side of the EU referendum.
At the time he vowed: "I will continue with my duties as the MP for Witney. It is an enormous privilege to serve the people of West Oxfordshire.
But today he warned it was "very difficult to sit as a backbencher and not be an enormous diversion and distraction from what the government's doing." (s:Mirror Uk)
