Occupation: Politician

#94113 David Cameron

The political system is broken, the economy is broken and so is society. That is why people are so depressed about the state of our country. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#94114 David Cameron

Half a century ago, the amazing courage of Rosa Parks, the visionary leadership of Martin Luther King, and the inspirational actions of the civil rights movement led politicians to write equality into the law and make real the promise of America for all her citizens. .

David Cameron Quotes about inspirational
#94115 David Cameron

We have the character of an island nation: independent, forthright, passionate in defence of our sovereignty. We can no more change this British sensibility than we can drain the English Channel. And because of this sensibility, we come to the European Union with a frame of mind that is more practical than emotional. .

David Cameron Quotes about change
#94116 David Cameron

After the Berlin Wall came down I visited that city and I will never forget it. The abandoned checkpoints. The sense of excitement about the future. The knowledge that a great continent was coming together. Healing those wounds of our history is the central story of the European Union. .

David Cameron Quotes about knowledge
#94117 David Cameron

Today, hundreds of millions dwell in freedom, from the Baltic to the Adriatic, from the Western Approaches to the Aegean. And while we must never take this for granted, the first purpose of the European Union - to secure peace - has been achieved and we should pay tribute to all those in the EU, alongside Nato, who made that happen. .

David Cameron Quotes about freedom
#94118 David Cameron

From Caesar's legions to the Napoleonic wars. From the Reformation, the Enlightenment and the industrial revolution to the defeat of nazism. We have helped to write European history, and Europe has helped write ours. .

David Cameron Quotes about war
#94119 David Cameron

I don't want to be Prime Minister of England, I want to be Prime Minister of the whole of the United Kingdom. .

David Cameron Quotes about want
#94120 David Cameron

I know the British people and they are not passengers - they are drivers. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#94121 David Cameron

The EU must be able to act with the speed and flexibility of a network, not the cumbersome rigidity of a bloc. We must not be weighed down by an insistence on a one size fits all approach which implies that all countries want the same level of integration. The fact is that they don't and we shouldn't assert that they do. .

David Cameron Quotes about work
#94122 David Cameron

I have no time for those who say there is no way Scotland could go it alone. I know first-hand the contribution Scotland and Scots make to Britain's success - so for me there's no question about whether Scotland could be an independent nation. .

David Cameron Quotes about success
#94123 David Cameron

Britain is characterized not just by its independence but, above all, by its openness. .

David Cameron Quotes about character
#94124 David Cameron

I mean, I'm a conservative. I believe that, you know, if you borrow too much, you just build up debts for your children to pay off. You put pressure on interest rates. You put at risk your economy. That's the case in Britain. We're not a reserve currency, so we need to get on and deal with this issue. .

David Cameron Quotes about children
#94125 David Cameron

Let me completely condemn these sickening scenes; scenes of looting, scenes of vandalism, scenes of thieving, scenes of people attacking police, of people even attacking firefighters. This is criminality pure and simple and it has to be confronted. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#94126 David Cameron

If we left the European Union, it would be a one-way ticket, not a return. So we will have time for a proper, reasoned debate. At the end of that debate you, the British people, will decide. .

David Cameron Quotes about time
#94127 David Cameron

What we're putting forward is the most radical reform of the welfare state... for 60 years. I think it will have a transformative effect in making sure that everyone is better off in work and better off working rather than on benefits. .

David Cameron Quotes about war
#94128 David Cameron

People feel that the EU is heading in a direction that they never signed up to. They resent the interference in our national life by what they see as unnecessary rules and regulation. And they wonder what the point of it all is. Put simply, many ask 'why can't we just have what we voted to join - a common market?' .

David Cameron Quotes about life
#94129 David Cameron

At a time when we're having to take such difficult decisions about how to cut back without damaging the things that matter the most, we should strain every sinew to cut error, waste and fraud. .

David Cameron Quotes about time
#94130 David Cameron

Because with courage and conviction I believe we can deliver a more flexible, adaptable and open European Union in which the interests and ambitions of all its members can be met. .

David Cameron Quotes about courage
#94131 David Cameron

When you're taking the country through difficult times and difficult decisions you've got to take the country with you. That means permanently trying to make the argument that what you're doing is fair and seen to be fair. .

David Cameron Quotes about time
#94132 David Cameron

But we will say something else. That for far too long in this country, people who can work, people who are able to work, and people who choose not to work: you cannot go on claiming welfare like you are now. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#94133 David Cameron

What Churchill described as the twin marauders of war and tyranny have been almost entirely banished from our continent. Today, hundreds of millions dwell in freedom, from the Baltic to the Adriatic, from the Western Approaches to the Aegean. .

David Cameron Quotes about war
#94134 David Cameron

David Cameron Quotes about time
#94135 David Cameron

Christmas gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us - a time when we can look back on the year that has passed and prepare for the year ahead. .

David Cameron Quotes about time
#94136 David Cameron

On the one hand we have got to ask, are there some areas of universal benefits that are no longer affordable? But on the other hand let us look at the issue of dependency where we have trapped people in poverty through the extent of welfare that they have. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#94137 David Cameron

If we are going to try to get across to the poorest people in the world that we care about their plight and we want them to join one world with the rest of us, we have got to make promises and keep promises. .

David Cameron Quotes about people
#361078 David Cameron

I am very sorry that Andy Coulson has decided to resign as my Director of Communications, although I understand that the continuing pressures on him and his family mean that he feels compelled to do so. Andy has told me that the focus on him was impeding his ability to do his job and was starting to prove a distraction for the Government. .

David Cameron Quotes about art
#361075 David Cameron

I came into politics because I love this country, I think its best days still lie ahead and I believe deeply in public service, and I think the service our country needs right now is to face up to our really big challenges, to confront our problems, to take difficult decisions, to lead people through those difficult decisions so that together we can reach better times ahead. .

David Cameron Quotes about love
#361077 David Cameron

This is going to be hard and difficult work. The coalition will throw up all sorts of challenges, but I believe together we can provide that strong and stable government that our country needs, based on those values, rebuilding family, rebuilding community, above all, rebuilding responsibility in our country. Those are the things I care about, those are the things that this Government will now start work on doing. Thank you very much. .
