Dun­can Smith: new PM must be pro-Brexit

The Daily Telegraph - - Britain Out -

The next prime min­is­ter must come from the Brexit camp, for­mer Tory leader Iain Dun­can Smith has in­sisted.

The hard-line stance would rule out Theresa May, the pro-Re­main Home Sec­re­tary, who is be­ing po­si­tioned as the “Stop Boris John­son” can­di­date by MPs loyal to David Cameron.

“Who­ever takes up that job, it would be very, very dif­fi­cult for the pub­lic who have voted for leav­ing the Euro­pean Union to find that they then had a prime min­is­ter who ac­tu­ally was op­posed to leav­ing the Euro­pean Union,” Mr Dun­can Smith told BBC One’s The An­drew Marr Show.
