Journalist James Delingpole went to university with "Dave" but when Shelagh Fogarty asked him to assess the outgoing PM's legacy, he was thoroughly unimpressed.

Cameron chaired his final cabinet meeting today and Delingpole admitted he was "hard pressed" to name the Prime Minister's achievements after six years at No.10.

"The place he always went back to was Libya, when he was greeted as a sort of conquering hero by the grateful Libyans.

"Well we know how that turned out...it's becoming a completely failed state and a home for ISIS.

"Apart from gay marriage, I'm really hard-pressed to say what his achievements as Prime Minister were. I don't think leading a coalition for example is a great thing - I think it's a sign of failure."

Asked by Shelagh if Cameron's patriotism was sincere, Delingpole said he "does believe in Britain but he doesn't have any core ideology as a Conservative."

Delingpole then revealed what happened the last time he spoke to Cameron - involving some choice language to describe the Prime Minister. You can hear that above.
