British Prime Minister David Cameron left a Conservative Party meeting in London just in time on Saturday morning, as did London Mayor Boris Johnson. They both disappeared before police barred entrance to the meeting in the face of angry protesters calling for Cameron's resignation. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED DEMONSTRATOR SAYING: "He hasn't been good for the people in Britain. He hasn't been good for the EU. He's not doing his job properly. Normally when you have a job and you don't do your job properly people get asked to leave. So we're asking him to leave." The protest comes after Cameron finally admitted to having a stake in his father's offshore trust... which was revealed in the leaked "Panama Papers." Cameron says he sold his interest and paid all related UK taxes before becoming prime minister. On Downing Street, more protesters say the admission has come too late. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JOHN, DEMONSTRATOR SAYING: "This is the final straw, yeah. And I think hopefully this will be the straw that's going to break the camel's back. The camel being David Cameron." The Panama Papers leak comes at a difficult time for Cameron. The prime minister is trying to rally support for staying in the European Union ahead of a June 23rd referendum.
