  • Eurosceptic Farage says pro-EU campaign is stealing a march on 'No'

    By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - Eurosceptics who want Britain to quit the European Union are letting pro-EU campaigners get a head start in mobilising opinion ahead of an In/Out referendum that could take place within a year, Britain's most prominent Eurosceptic said on Thursday. Prime Minister David Cameron, buoyed by an unexpectedly decisive election win in May, has already begun trying to renegotiate Britain's relationship with the EU, saying he will campaign for a 'Yes' to continued membership if the talks are successful. Nigel Farage, leader of the anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP), said high-profile interventions such as U.S. President Barack Obama saying he wanted Britain to stay in the EU, and the launch of pro-EU campaign groups such as Universities for Europe, had left the 'No' side lagging.
