MOSCOW (Sputnik) — UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday lashed out at Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn for putting little effort into the Remain campaign of the United Kingdom's EU membership referendum.
"To try to pretend that last Thursday's vote was a result of the state of the British economy is complete nonsense… We all have to reflect on our role in the referendum campaign, I know the honorable gentleman says he put his back into it, all I'd say is that I hate to see him when he's not trying," Cameron said during Prime Minister's Questions in the country's parliament.
Both Cameron and Corbyn supported the Remain camp of the referendum.
On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
