Former United Kingdom prime minister to speak at Hamilton College

CLINTON â" Former United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron is the next Sacerdote Great Names speaker at Hamilton College.
Cameron will speak at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15. The event is free and open to the public, though tickets are required. Tickets are available through the collegeâs website.
Cameron â" who served from 2010-2016 â" is the second British prime minster to speak as part of the Sacerdote Series. Margaret Thatcher spoke in 1999.
Cameron led Britainâs first coalition government in nearly 70 years and, at the 2015 general election, formed the first majority Conservative government in the UK for more than two decades. In doing so, he became the UKâs youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812 and, in 2015, the first-ever British Prime Minister to increase both his partyâs share of the vote and their number of seats in the House of Commons, having already served a full term as premier.
Internationally, Cameron developed a foreign policy in the post-Iraq era that addressed the new challenges of the Arab Spring, as well as a more aggressive Russia, while ensuring that Britain played a full role in the global fight against ISIS.
Since leaving 10 Downing Street, Cameron has continued focusing on issues he advanced while in office. He is Chairman of Patrons at National Citizen Service (NCS), the UKâs flagship youth development program, and is President of Alzheimerâs Research UK, Britainâs leading medical research charity with special focus on funding bio-medical research into the cause, prevention, and cure of dementia.Source: Google News United Kingdom | Netizen 24 United Kingdom
