By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - British interior minister Theresa May, the bookmakers' favorite to replace David Cameron as prime minister, said on Thursday there was no going back on Britain leaving the EU but that divorce talks would not start until the end of the year. "There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door and no second referendum." As Britain reels from the decision to leave the EU, speculation has grown that whoever takes over from Cameron might try to find a way to keep the country in the bloc which buys nearly half the country's exports. Bookmakers make May, the favorite to succeed Cameron followed by Leave campaign leader and ex-London mayor Boris Johnson, with polls suggesting she is also the choice of Conservative Party members who will make the final decision once lawmakers have narrowed the field to two candidates.
