Cameron To Be New Prime Minister Imminently Tory leader David Cameron is on his way to Buckingham Palace to ask the Queen permission to form a new government. As his silver Jaguar drove through the gates at the front of the palace, Mr Cameron was greeted by cheers from a gathered crowd. It comes just a short while after Gordon Brown quit as prime minister, telling the country he had "loved the job" and adding: "Thank you and goodbye," before walking out of Downing Street with his wife and sons. Sky News' political editor Adam Boulton said: "We are expecting David Cameron and his wife in Downing Street this evening." Mr Cameron will be the 14th prime minister the Queen has dealt with.
