British Prime Minister Theresa May said there is no going back on the result of the June 2016 vote in which the British people voted in favor of Britain leaving the European Union, Reuters news agency reported.

May said that a second vote on the UK’s membership of the EU is not an option.“We are leaving the EU and there is no question of a second referendum or going back and I think that’s important,” May said.

“People in the UK feel very strongly that if we take a decision, then governments should turn not round and say no you got that wrong,” she said when asked if Britain would consider a second referendum.

Almost fifty two percent of British citizens voted to leave the EU in June 2016. The vote prompted the resignation of David Cameron from the office of British Prime Minister and Theresa May took his place as the proponent of UK leaving the EU.
