UK Prime Minister Theresa May will not hold a second referendum on Britain’s exit from the European Union، amid growing calls for a new vote on Brexit، according to PressTV.

"We will not be having a second referendum،" May's spokesman said Thursday.

Earlier، leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage suggested that Britain should hold a second referendum on EU membership which he claims would silence those who are against leaving the bloc.

"Maybe، just maybe، we should have a second referendum on EU membership. It would kill off the issue for a generation once and for all،" Farage said on Twitter.

Farage، the former UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader and current Member of the European Parliament (MEP)، said that pro-Europeans such as former UK prime minister Tony Blair "will never ever give up."

The Liberal Democrats and other pro-EU politicians have called for a second EU referendum، arguing that Britons did not know the full repercussions of leaving the EU when they voted.
