Shortly after the confirmation that a deal had been struck, Mr Cameron tweeted: “It’s good to end a difficult year with some positive news. Trade deal is very welcome – and a vital step in building a new relationship with the EU as friends, neighbours and partners.
“Many congratulations to the UK negotiating team.”
However, the reaction he received was mixed to say the least.
Douglas McKinnon replied: “The chief architect of Brexit speaks.
“It is all that history will remember him by.”
Another poster was even more blunt, claiming: “You destroyed this country.”
A third reminded Mr Cameron of his decision to resign the day after the referendum result was known.
They said: “I really feel like you shouldn’t be tweeting on this matter after you put us in this position and walked away, leaving the negotiations to others…”
Letesia Gibson added: “Literally speechless at the arrogance of this tweet.”

Attic Rahman added: “It would never have been possible if you hadn’t given the referendum.
“I am sure there are millions who thank you for that.”
Mr Cameron called the 2016 referendum after winning an overall majority for the Conservatives in the general election of the previous year.
He campaigned for Remain – but his gamble backfired when Leave harrowly triumphed on June 23.
The result ended his political career overnight and he has kept a low profile ever since.
EastEnders actor Danny Dyer famously took Old Etonian Mr Cameron to task in 2018 during an appearance with Good Evening Britain, hosted by Piers Morgan.
Dyer said: “So what’s happened to that t*** David Cameron who called it on?
“How comes he can scuttle off? He called all this on.
“Where is he? He’s in Europe, in Nice, with his trotters up, yeah, where is the geezer?
“I think he should be held account for it.”
