A possible return to politics for the former prime minister David Cameron has been branded 'bizarre' and 'unreal' by politicians.
The Sun has revealed that the ex-Conservative leader Cameron is looking to return to frontline politics – and he fancies the role as of foreign secretary.
The report said that Mr Cameron was 'bored shitless' and would like to return to the Cabinet next year.
A source told the newspaper: 'David is dedicated to public service, and has often said he wouldn't rule out a public role one day, domestically or internationally… but he is only 52, and still a young man.'
Labour MPs were quick to react to the news - calling the idea 'bizarre' and 'unreal'.
