Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to comments today from a senior White House official on Britain’s relationship with the EU, said: 

“On the same day that top British business leaders fired a warning shot across the bows of the Prime Minister, a senior White House official has also signalled concerns about the possibility of Britain leaving the EU. 

“There is today a real risk of Britain sleepwalking towards exit because of a Prime Minister motivated more by the need for party unity than by the interests of the country.”
