David Cameron has admitted that he failed in his bid to keep Britain in a reformed European Union and is “truly sorry” for the uncertainty and division that followed the Brexit referendum.
The Conservative former prime minister, 52, said he thinks about the consequences of the vote to leave the EU “every single day” and worries “desperately” about what will happen next.
In an interview with The Times ahead of the publication of his memoir next week, Mr Cameron also said a second referendum cannot be ruled out – suggesting it could provide a way of “unblocking the blockage”.
And he attacked Boris Johnson and Michael Gove for their part in the Leave campaign, accusing the pair of behaving “appallingly” and effectively “trashing” the Government.
Tory former prime minister David Cameron said passing an Act of Parliament andthen going on to break an international treaty obligation "is the very, verylast thing you should contemplate", saying he had serious misgivings about theInternal Market Bill.
