UK lawmakers warn Obama not to intervene in EU debate


A handful of UK lawmakers have warned US President Barack Obama not to intervene in the debate about whether Britain should remain in the European Union. In an open letter on Thursday, five lawmakers and Nigel Farage, leader of the anti-EU UKIP party, argue that interfering in the debate would mark an “unfortunate milestone” in Obama’s presidency. Obama is traveling to Britain next month ahead of a trip to Germany. Lawmakers who want Britain to leave bloc fear the president will throw his considerable popularity behind the “remain” campaign.
