Cameron responded to criticisms over his remarks last week that a British exit from the European Union (“brickset” English words from Britain and the exit — approx. ed.) may lead to a new conflict in Europe. He stated that he “never talked about the fact that if we leave Thursday, then on Friday will break out world war III”. The Prime Minister added that Putin would be happy “broksita”, as well as al-Baghdadi.
