Staying in EU 'the British thing to do', says PM Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron arrives to deliver a speech on the upcoming EU referendum at the Savoy Place in London on June 7, 2016David Cameron argued Tuesday that remaining part of the EU was the “British thing to do” as he faced senior eurosceptic Nigel Farage in a TV grilling two weeks before a knife-edge referendum. Urgently seeking a breakthrough, the prime minister spoke out against what he called Farage’s “little England” vision and played the patriotism card by saying a June 23 out vote would mean “quitting, and I don’t think we’re quitters”. Despite an assured performance, Cameron faced repeated hostile questions from the audience on high immigration from the European Union to Britain, the “Leave” side’s trump card during the campaign.
