DAVID CAMERON has said he doesn’t want to give a ‘running commentary’ on the current Brexit deadlock, but is against a no-deal exit.
The former Tory prime minister, who resigned following the 2016 referendum, said the best outcome would be an agreement with the EU.
Mr Cameron, who is currently writing his memoirs, made the comments to ITV News after being approached on his doorstep yesterday ahead of the Brexit vote tonight.
He said of Theresa May’s current strategy: ‘I support the prime minister and I think she’s doing the right thing seeking a partnership deal with the European Union. She has my support and I wish her well. I don’t think no-deal is a good idea, at all.’
Anti-Brexit group Best for Britain said his comments should be ignored.
Spokeswoman Layla Moran, a Lib Dem MP, said: ‘This is a man whose selfish attempt to keep his own party together divided the country.
‘I don’t know why people still pay attention to what he has to say.
‘Saying no-deal wouldn’t be good is an understatement. It would be disastrous, and it’s a course Mr Cameron set this country on.’
