Brexit: David Cameron to quit after UK votes to leave EU

BBC News

Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down by October after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Mr Cameron made the announcement in a statement outside Downing Street after the final result was announced.

He said he would attempt to “steady the ship” over the coming weeks and months but that “fresh leadership” was needed.

The PM had urged the country to vote Remain, warning of economic and security consequences of an exit, but the UK voted to Leave by 52% to 48%.

England and Wales voted strongly for Brexit, while London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed staying in.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed it as the UK’s “independence day” but the Remain camp called it a “catastrophe”.

The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.

Flanked by wife Samantha, Mr Cameron said he had informed the Queen of his decision to remain in place for the short term and to then hand over to a new prime minister by the time of the Conservative conference in October.

It would be for the new prime minister to carry out negotiations with the EU and invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which would give the UK two years to negotiate its withdrawal, he said.

“The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected,” said Mr Cameron. “The will of the British people is an instruction that must be delivered.”

    Less power for the Indian MPs in the British Parliament, in fact less power for the Indian block vote.

    Cerburus,

    The website links and the information you have provided above are VERY IMPORTANT to expose the ILLEGAL and UNETHICAL buying of David Cameron’s and Conservative Party support by the Tamil Tiger Diaspora to exert pressure on Sri Lanka!

    Please write and submit an article to LankaWeb that both summarizes and contains these two articles in full!

    Thank you!
