ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Prime Minister David Cameron accused those campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union of lying, saying on Tuesday he had to challenge their views after watching TV news bulletins. It was a tactic that Cameron, who is leading the "In" campaign, used in a television debate with anti-EU campaigner Nigel Farage, whom he accused of wanting to turn the country into "Little England" rather than Great Britain. In front of an audience on ITV television, Cameron pressed his criticism of those campaigning to leave the European Union. He accused Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party and a leader of one of the groups wanting a British exit, or Brexit, of wanting to damage Britain's economy. Cameron had previously held back from criticizing the main figures in the official Leave campaign, many of whom are senior members of his Conservative Party, including former London mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Secretary Michael Gove.
