Tories React With Fury Over U.S. Advice to U.K on EU

Lawmakers in Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party reacted with anger to a call by the U.S. for Britain to remain in the European Union, as the premier emphasized points of agreement with his closest ally.

Philip Gordon, the assistant secretary of state for European Affairs, said yesterday the U.S. wants Britain to stay in the EU as a “strong voice” and warned of the risks of holding a referendum on continued membership of the 27-nation bloc.
