London: Alec Baldwin has urged Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron to resign because of his links to the ongoing News of the World phone-hacking scandal.
Britain’s leader Cameron has been dragged into the controversy because he hired the newspaper’s former editor Andy Coulson as his communications director.
Coulson was forced to step down from his post in February (11) over the growing scandal, and he was arrested and questioned by police earlier this month (Jul1).
Now, Baldwin, a keen political commentator who has hinted he wants to run for New York mayor, has called on Cameron to resign from his post.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, the actor writes, "Cameron should resign. England is filled with people who could do a better job”, reports Contactmusic.
When one follower disagreed with his comment, Baldwin replied, "Brits are right to be defensive about Cameron. That must hurt like hell that the crypto fascist Rupert M had (London``s police service) Scotland Yard in his pocket.
"For the U.K... try not to be like USA. Zero tolerance for abuses like this criminal activity. Cameron should resign,” he added.
