May avoids saying she would vote for Brexit in another referendum

British Prime Minister Theresa May repeatedly avoided answering a question on whether she would vote for Brexit if there was another referendum.

"I voted Remain for good reasons [last year] but circumstances move on," May told LBC radio, as reported by media outlets. "What I did last time round was I looked at everything and came to a judgment and I'd do exactly the same this time round, but we’re not having another referendum and that's absolutely crucial."

Meanwhile, May's deputy, Damian Green, told Channel 4 News that he still supported EU membership, according to Bloomberg News.

The comments risk causing anger within the Conservative Party, as any suggestion that the prime minister is not fully committed to Brexit could have consequences for her as the party leader, Bloomberg said.
