UK PM contender to vote to leave EU



Interior minister Sajid Javid, a contender to replace Prime Minister Theresa May, said on Monday he would vote to leave the European Union if Britain held a second referendum because it was time to end the never-ending debate.

Asked whether he would vote leave or remain in a second referendum, Javid told journalists at a hustings debate in Westminster: “I’d vote leave. The reason I’d vote leave is that we cannot as a country keep having this debate about in or out of the EU again and again and again … We’ve just got to put an end to this debate.”

He added he did not want a second referendum.
