David Cameron's successor as Prime Minister will be chosen by September 2

Boris for PM? Don't make me laugh! Demob-happy Cameron jokes in the Commons as he faces MPs for first time since resigning - but where's his most likely successor?

David Cameron cracked jokes today as he faced MPs for the first time since his humiliation in the EU referendum - but Boris Johnson was nowhere to be seen.

The Prime Minister seemed demob happy as he appeared in the Commons, quipping that he thought he was having a 'bad day' until he realised the scale of the Labour coup against Jeremy Corbyn.

He also urged the newly-elected Tooting MP took keep her mobile phone on as she 'might be in the shadow cabinet by the end of the day'.

But Mr Cameron was defiant about his controversial 'Project Fear' warnings about the consequences of Brexit, saying we were already seeing the fallout from the decision.

And he hit out at 'despicable' racist incidents in the wake of the referendum Leave vote, saying they 'will not stand for hate crime'.

The appearance came as it emerged that Mr Cameron's successor as Prime Minister will be appointed by September 2 at the latest.

The winner of the Conservative leadership contest will be announced on that date, with David Cameron potentially handing over the keys to Downing Street the same day.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
