‘Shocked’ MPs react to British PM David Cameron’s Brexit resignation

‘Shocked’ MPs react to British PM David Cameron’s Brexit resignation
Following David Cameron’s revelation that he will step down as prime minister within three months of the Brexit vote, British politicians from both sides of the fray have reacted to the news.

Many MPs took to Twitter to praise Cameron’s “dignified” concession speech and express regret over his resignation.

Cameron said he wants a new PM in place by the Conservative Party Conference in October, a decision he says was not “taken lightly”.

Other British politicians reacted to Cameron’s exit with considerably more enthusiasm.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s position could also be in jeopardy amid speculation of a party revolt over his leadership during the referendum.

While Boris Johnson has yet to comment on Cameron’s resignation, he is widely tipped to become Britain’s next PM.
