BBC Previews Today's DePauw Visit by David Cameron

Details on Today's Ubben Lecture

"David Cameron has posted pictures of himself courtside at a U.S. basketball game with ex-president George W. Bush," reports the BBC today. "The former PM is on a trip to the U.S. where he is set to give a speech at DePauw University, on 'The Historic Events of 2016 and Where We Go From Here'. It will be among his first public speaking appearances since he quit as PM in June, and resigned as an MP in September."

The piece adds, "He is treading a well worn path -- Tony Blair gave a speech there in 2008, the year after he resigned as PM, and John Major spoke there in 2001."
