Tax scandal weakens Cameron ahead of EU referendum


LONDON: The scandal over his tax dealings and a steel sector crisis have badly bruised Prime Minister David Cameron just three months ahead of a crucial referendum on Britain’s EU membership, experts said. Cameron and his Downing Street office issued four comments regarding the Panama Papers before the British leader on Thursday finally admitted he had held shares in his late father’s Bahamas-based offshore investment fund. Cameron’s popularity has slipped in recent weeks, with only 34 percent of respondents saying they thought he was doing well and 58 percent that he was doing badly, according to a YouGov poll released on Friday. His previous popularity rating in a similar poll in February was 39 percent and 53 percent.
