David Davis: Cameron could continue as PM under Brexit

Former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said David Cameron would be able to remain as prime minister if the UK voted to leave the EU.

Davis, who supports the Leave campaign, told the BBC's Andrew Marr the PM could remain in the role as long as he appoints someone else to head the renegotiation.

If we vote for Brexit, then it's clear that David Cameron can't lead that bit of his Government's activities, the renegotiation.

He would have to appoint somebody who the public had faith in, who the party had faith in but most importantly, believed in the negotiation.

If he did that, I don't see any reason why he shouldn't go on.

He played down suggestions that he could be appointed in the renegotiation role, adding: "Let us confine ourselves to the plausible shall we?"
