No second referendum, PM May on Brexit

No second referendum, PM May on BrexitPrime minister of the UK said the priority is the future relationship between the UK and the EU, The Guardian.

Theresa May is to appear at Thursday’s meeting of the European council, where she is to voice that Britain’s decision to leave the EU is irreversible and there can be no second referendum.

Brussels is to host 27 European Union leaders, including the UK's prime minister who will have first opportunity to address the leaders of all the other member states since the UK voted to leave the European Union in June.

According to an anonymous source, she would tell her fellow EU leaders: “The British people have made a decision and it’s right and proper that that decision is honoured. There will be no second referendum. The priority now has got to be looking to the future, and the relationship between the UK, once we leave”.

“She wants the outcome at the end of this process to be a strong UK, as a partner of a strong EU,” the source said. “She doesn’t want the process of the UK leaving to be damaging for the rest of the EU. She wants it to be a smooth, constructive, orderly process.”

Brexit being not on the formal aganda, the European council president Donald Tusk promised he will give May the opportunity to set out the “current state of affairs in the country” over coffee at the end of the meal.
