‘They Asked Me to Shut Up’: Juncker Claims Cameron Told Him Not to Interfere in UK’s Brexit Debate

In a 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership in the European Union, 52% of Britons voted to leave the bloc, while 48% said “no” to Brexit.

Former European Сommission President Jean-Claude Juncker has lashed out at ex-UK Prime Minister David Cameron, claiming that five years ago, Cameron kept him from convincing Britons to oppose the nation’s withdrawal from the EU.

In an interview with the UK newspaper i published on Monday, Juncker, who was European Сommission President between 2015 and 2019, referred to events in 2016, when the struggle for the Brexit referendum intensified and then-UK PM Cameron told him not to speak to the British media.
