Islamic state ‘happy with Brexit vote’
DAVID Cameron has suggested Islamic State would be happy if the UK votes to leave the European Union on June 23.
Answering questions after delivering a myth-busting speech on the EU referendum in London, the Prime Minister posed a rhetorical question asking “who would be happy” if the nation does vote for Brexit.
He then said Russian president Vladimir Putin would welcome such an outcome, before adding that “I suspect al-Baghdadi” would, too.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the leader of the IS terror group.
Mr Cameron added: “Our friends around the world are giving us a very clear message, they are saying ‘it’s all up to you, it is your sovereign choice’.
“But our friends in Australia and New Zealand and America and all around the world and all round Europe, they are saying ‘it’s all up to you, it’s all your choice, but we would like you to stay, we think it’s good for us and it’s good for you’.”
