Lord Cameron speaks about shock return to frontline politics

He is set to be introduced into the House of Lords formally on Monday.

The new name reflects Lord Cameron‘s long-held ties to the Cotswold town of Chipping Norton, which lies within his former Witney constituency.

He has now returned to frontline politics seven years after he resigned as prime minister in the wake of the Brexit referendum.

During his time in office, the former Conservative leader was known as a member of the so-called “Chipping Norton set”.

The group, featuring wealthy members of the British establishment who lived in the area, also included presenter Jeremy Clarkson and News UK chief executive Rebekah Brooks.

Lord Cameron, who stood down as an MP in 2016, made his first foreign trip in his new cabinet role earlier this week when he met Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv.
