Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down by October after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Mr Cameron made the announcement in a statement outside Downing Street after the final result was announced.

He said he would attempt to "steady the ship" over the coming weeks and months.

He had urged the country to vote Remain, warning of economic and security consequences of an exit, but Leave won by 52% to 48%.

England and Wales voting strongly for Brexit, while London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed staying in.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed it as the UK's "independence day" but the Remain camp called it a "catastrophe".

The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.(BBC)

    Unfortunately COCONUTS are expensive in UK and further Cameron has no temples to go round or even operate in one as his political office !

    Hema Friday, 24 June 2016 01:13 PM

    Now there's a politician. Unlike crooks who go by that name in our country.

    Dalu Banda Friday, 24 June 2016 01:31 PM

    What about Arjun Mahendran ?

    NV Jen Friday, 24 June 2016 01:37 PM

    A true statesman, accepting responsibility for the defeat, though it's not about his premiership. We have corrupt Rajapakses, who have been thrown out twice but still trying to grab power, by hook or crook.

    mnsmart Friday, 24 June 2016 01:42 PM

    Learn from our politicians, you can stay in power

    Rom Friday, 24 June 2016 01:49 PM

    Gentleman ! Our politicians...........

    Raj Friday, 24 June 2016 01:52 PM

    This is called Gentleman Politician. Will our politicians ever achieve this sort mentality to accept responsibility and people's opinion?.

    dham Friday, 24 June 2016 01:52 PM

    An example for our greedy politicians like MR top on that list via DM Android App

    Elite Friday, 24 June 2016 01:57 PM

    All this time I supported Mahinda. Still doing so. I was totally surprised to see the how democratic is UK though we hate suddas for what they did to our country. I think amazing leader who is performing well in recent times has to leave bowing the head for peoples will. This is different battle trigger his resignation. via DM Android App

    Britain wises up.

    Manel Friday, 24 June 2016 02:08 PM

    Exemplary Dave. This is how politicians should behave.

    Bala Friday, 24 June 2016 02:13 PM

    Well done - congratulations for your honourable conduct of not waiting and trying to pull the rug on a peoples decision with a few undesirable crooks called a joint opposition..

    Spirit Friday, 24 June 2016 02:13 PM

    Please do not resign..please consult Sri Lankan Politicians.

    Bingo Friday, 24 June 2016 02:18 PM

    Former king said politicians never retire. Yes, only in 3rd world.

    willows Friday, 24 June 2016 02:22 PM

    that is called practicing democracy

    Johan Friday, 24 June 2016 02:29 PM

    This is called gentlemen politics. See our politicians even if people reject.they bribe them and try to come to powerAgain. And they try to extend their power whatever possibleWays.

    lali Friday, 24 June 2016 02:39 PM

    Why only MR. Ranil were in party leadership for more than 20 years till he comes in to power.

    Bingo Friday, 24 June 2016 02:42 PM

    Not only UK but entire 1st world is very democratic compare to SL. You can't even compare to be honest!. And that's why they are developed we are not. If sudda control SL we would be in better position like HongKong. Shame on both UNP and SLFP politticas.. People really need to change this system and get JVP into power.

    kk Friday, 24 June 2016 03:03 PM

    people did not hear me. Nation are the rulers. check my accounts within three months. I am leaving. WHAT A NOTICE. via DM Android App

    Gayan Friday, 24 June 2016 03:07 PM

    Ranil lost more than 20 elections

    mnsmart Friday, 24 June 2016 03:11 PM

    Agree with you, but not JVP another group whom eradicated peoples value. let suddas take over

    Sharon Friday, 24 June 2016 03:18 PM

    Learnt from MR. Went out of Temple trees before last result was out. Well done Cameron via DM iOS App

    Jagath Leanage Friday, 24 June 2016 03:29 PM

    Lesson to all politicians in Sri Lanka. If loose election must resign. But ours is completely different. After loosing, pulling leg is the habit of the looser.

    Sincere Friday, 24 June 2016 03:40 PM

    The moment he realized that his leadership has failed, he volunteered to resign. Its called gentleman's politics. Our cronies are still trying to fish in troubled waters for their own stomachs!

    5555 Friday, 24 June 2016 04:17 PM

    Awesome England you guys will have a bright future and make your decisions on your own,

    Devaka Friday, 24 June 2016 04:22 PM

    Hats off to an exemplary politician unlike the garbage we have who were more concerned about Brexit than our problems

    Nadeesha Friday, 24 June 2016 05:17 PM

    Our politicians go to any extend to retain power or come to power. Their best and last weapon is arousing communalism.
