When he was finally forced to answer the question, Cameron said he would “continue to lead the government in the way I have”.
But how can one describe that leadership, when more than half of his own party want to vote against his policy, and if a majority of the UK does the same? What’s the best way to describe, in those circumstances, the way he will continue to lead?
David Cameron has dodged the question of whether he will quit as Prime Minister if he loses the EU referendum.
Asked by veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner whether he will resign if Britain votes to leave the EU referendum, the Prime Minister said: “This referendum is the Government’s policy and the country will decide whether we stay in the European Union or leave the European Union.”
Later, when asked the question again by shadow minister Barry Gardiner, Mr Cameron insisted he would stay as Prime Minister regardless of the result.
“Come what may, I will continue to lead the government in the way I have,” Mr Cameron said.
