Until last month, the advice David Cameron chose to give fellow British parliamentarians on his last day as prime minister Wednesday might have seemed apt.The June 23 referendum vote for "Brexit" not only made Cameron's own position untenable but left both Britain and the EU facing years of uncertainty as they try to forge new rules on trade, investment, migration and a string of other key areas.It was not supposed to end like this for Britain's youngest prime minister in nearly two centuries, who navigated five years of coalition politics to win a narrow majority in 2015 on a platform of economic recovery and social reform.Voters ignored Cameron's warnings that going it alone would be a "leap in the dark" that would bring on a self-inflicted recession and Cameron himself underestimated public anger at the establishment, exacerbated by his government's spending cuts.Answering questions from MPs for the final time as prime minister, Cameron trumpeted his economic record: 2.5 million more people in work, millions of apprenticeships, a growth rate among the highest in the developed world.Cameron overcame three successive election defeats for his Conservative Party by changing its image from that of a party of the wealthy and old to one more in touch with modern life.
