David Cameron has insisted he will remain in Number 10 regardless of the result of the EU referendum.

The Prime Minister told The Times Magazine he felt responsible for the referendum as it was something he had promised.

He also said he would be the best person to lead negotiations after a Leave vote thanks to his “strong relationships” around Europe.

Discussing his role he said: “I just get on with the job. I have a very clear mandate from the British people to serve as Prime Minister in a Conservative Government, delivering a referendum.”

Asked whether he could stay in his post in the event of Brexit, he said: “Yes. I think it’s very important that the individual careers of individual politicians don’t get caught up in this question.”

He added: “It won’t be a verdict on me, whatever the outcome is. It’s a verdict on the question, but I do care a lot about the question.”
