British Prime Minister David Cameron has warned of the dangers of embracing “leave” campaigner Nigel Farage’s vision of Britain and its role in the world ahead of the country’s referendum on its EU membership.

Cameron says Farage wants to take Britain “backwards” and divide rather than unite.

He made the argument in an article in the Sunday Telegraph, as large rallies ahead of the EU vote remained suspended following the killing Thursday of Labour Party lawmaker Jo Cox.

Both sides are expected to resume full-scale campaigning shortly ahead of the Thursday vote.
