Cameron Accuses Rivals in EU Referendum Campaign of Lying

Prime Minister David Cameron accused those campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union of lying, saying on Tuesday he had to challenge their views after watching TV news bulletins.

The prime minister called an unexpected news conference at short notice during which he tried to move the focus away from immigration in an increasingly heated campaign before the June 23 referendum on whether to remain in the 28-member bloc.

It was a tactic that Cameron, who is leading the “In” campaign, also used in a television debate with anti-EU campaigner Nigel Farage, whom he accused of wanting to turn the country into “Little England” rather than Great Britain.
