A top British euroskeptic minister who quit over welfare cuts launched a damaging attack on Prime Minister David Cameron Sunday, exposing tensions within his government ahead of June's referendum on EU membership.In his first interview since resigning Friday, Iain Duncan Smith accused Cameron of trying to reduce Britain's budget deficit through benefit cuts which were unfairly hurting poorer voters while protecting older, richer ones.Duncan Smith, who last month became one of the most prominent Conservatives to say he would campaign against Cameron for Britain to leave the EU on June 23, denied his shock resignation was about Europe.Ministers in Cameron's government argued publicly Sunday about whether Duncan Smith's resignation was a principled stand against benefit cuts or a euroskeptic plot to undermine the premier.
