Former British Prime Minister David Cameron attempted to have the editor of a national newspaper that strongly supported Brexit sacked during last year's European Union referendum campaign, the BBC has reported.Cameron, who led the campaign for Britain to stay in the EU, met the owner of the Daily Mail tabloid, the country's second-biggest selling paper with the largest online audience, to urge him to either rein in or sack its editor Paul Dacre, according to the report by BBC TV's "Newsnight" program.A spokesman for Cameron told the BBC he denied the report and had merely sought to persuade them of his pro-EU case.Britons voted by 52-48 percent for Brexit on June 23 last year, prompting Cameron to resign the next day.
