“We are leaving the EU and there is no question of a second referendum or going back and I think that’s important,” May told the Munich Security Conference.

“People in the UK feel very strongly that if we take a decision, then governments should turn not round and say no you got that wrong,” she said when asked if Britain would consider a second referendum.
