Fox News' Brian Kilmeade: British Press Better 'Back Off' Romney (VIDEO)

It appears the British media's treatment of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has upset some of their colleagues on the other side of the Atlantic.

While the Westminster pack piled in to Mitt's "Romneyshambles" comments about the Olympics, Fox News' Brian Kilmeade warned them, and the British government, to "back off".

"It was a candid response to a security question, and the British press are going to town with it," he complained.

"I think the press better back off, and so should the officials, this guy could be president."

We have been warned.
