Referendum aftermath

All the speculation is now over what David Cameron will do. Will he stay on to try to unify a country split down the middle, or having led the losing argument, is his position untenable?

Brexit Tories seem to want him to stay but he may feel he can’t. He can be accused of high stakes gambling to put this issue to bed and get his party back, but losing everything as the result went against him.

Boris Johnson would be hot favourite to succeed him. Michael Gove will be prominent for the Tories in the future. An interesting question is what happens to Nigel Farage and UKIP now they have what they want.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron says he’s ‘gutted and heartbroken’ but accepts the result. Accuses Jeremy Corbyn and Labour leadership of ‘utter spinelessness’ in failing to convince normal Labour supporters to stay in Europe.
