Cameron's tweet promised stability not chaos, yet ushered in easily the most unstable & unpredictable four years of British peacetime politics since 1918. My take @CapX on the lessons of our age of political volatility
Taking a step back, two (three) years of utter mayhem, 2014-17, followed by two years of stalemate, since June 2017 exit poll.

2014: Ukip Euros, Scotland
2015: Clegg collapse, SNP landslide, Corbyn
2016: Brexit, Cameron out, Boris blows up, Trump
2017: May campaign collapse
David Cameron's memoir this Autumn will want to set out a record - decade as party leader, 6 years as PM - that spans beyond referendum that ended his political career. Its reasonable to make his account of this tweet - what he got wrong & why - one credibility test of his memoir
What are other people doing to mark "chaos with @Ed_Miliband day" this year? There should be a @CheerfulPodcast anniversary special for next year's 5th anniversary, but it might be trickier to persuade David Cameron to be a guest on it.
The fourth anniversary of the 2015 General Election itself (7th May) falls on Tuesday.
