Russia dubs ‘expired politician’ David Cameron’s appointment as ‘buffoonery’

New Foreign Secretary David Cameron has been labelled an “expired politician” with his appointment to the role dubbed “buffoonery” by Kremlin-backed Russian media.

And replacing Cleverly as Foreign Secretary was ex-Prime Minister David Cameron – a move which shocked everyone, and saw him made a life Peer in the process.

But the move has been ridiculed by none other than Russia, with an expert writing in the biggest Kremlin-backed media outlet that he'll be “jobless” soon enough. Moscow-based journalist, Mikhail Rostovsky, writing in Moskovskij Komsomolets said: “Sometimes they come back – and no, I don't mean the living dead, but expired politicians.

"Question: is this the political life of a serious and self-respecting state or a buffoonery? “I will refrain from answering and limit myself to the following conclusion: 'Russia’s great friend' David Cameron should not wean himself too much from political mothballs – he'll be back there very soon.”

Despite once claiming he was a friend of Russia, Lord Cameron was actually banned from entering the country in August 2022. He was one of 39 sanction politicians and journalists banned in response to UK sanctions brought in on several occasions after Russia invaded neighbouring Ukraine nearly two years ago.

Lord Cameron topped the list, which also included Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, and fellow Labour MPs Lisa Nandy and David Lammy.
