Just about every government in the world, except Russia (UKIP's favorite), has expressed a view that it hopes Britain remains in the EU. This includes Commonwealth countries and allies in North and South America, Africa and Asia.
President Obama intervened again last week by advising David Cameron in a phone call on Tuesday that the US sees Britain's interests as best served in the EU rather than outside.
Of course, the White House will fully expect that this information will become public knowledge and will hope that it will have a positive impact on the prospects of an IN vote. Barack Obama is probably more widely respected by the British public than any leading UK politician at the moment.
Obama & IN or Putin & UKIP - who do you trust?
Euractiv reported the phone call.
