MOSCOW (Sputnik) — If you vote to stay we stay and that’s it—and if we vote to leave, we leave, that’s it. You can’t have ‘neverendums,’" Cameron said at a World Economic Forum event on Tuesday, as quoted by The Wall Street Journal.

Cameron’s comments closely follow those of Nigel Farage, the head of the eurosceptic United Kingdom Independence Party, who claimed that if the UK public chose to remain in the European Union by 52 percent it could justify another vote.

UK citizens are set to vote on June 23 in a referendum on the country's EU membership, after UK Prime Minister David Cameron and the leaders of the 27 other EU member states reached a deal in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc.
