British Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued a warning to US President Donald Trump ahead of his visit to London for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit next week.
"What we (the USA and the UK) don't do, traditionally, as loving allies and friends, what we don't do traditionally is get involved in each other's election campaigns".
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party has seen its lead over the opposition Labour Party narrow to eight points from 10 a week ago, according to a poll by Panelbase, the latest of several polls to show a slight tightening of the race.
Taking questions from LBC listeners, Johnson declined to say how many children he had or whether he would have any more.
Trump arrives in London Monday for a two-day trip to attend what's shaping up to be a fiery North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, hosted by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

On Friday, a senior Trump administration official advised reporters that Trump is "absolutely cognizant of not, again, wading into other country's elections".
Mr Johnson cited - saying in a press conference in London the United Kingdom was "at its best when it's helping to lead a strong European Union" and would end up at "the back of the queue" for American trade deals if it left.
The president also warned in a recent interview that left-wing Labour leader Corbyn would take Britain to "such bad places".
On Wednesday, UK main opposition Labour accused PM Johnson of plotting a "toxic" deal with Trump to allow U.S. pharmaceutical companies access to the state health service.
The prime minister has denied this, and this week said if Washington tried to include the NHS in trade talks, "we'd walk away".
"First of all the NHS is not for sale".
At the other end of the political spectrum, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, a Trump ally and friend, is also hoping Trump's visit will benefit him and give a lift to his flagging electoral prospects.
Mr Trump did have some criticism for Mr Johnson's Brexit deal, claiming it hinders trade with the US.
Asked if he would rather be Prime Minister or have Britain leave the European Union, he replied: "I would rather get us out of the EU". One poll gauged Trump's favorability versus Lincoln, who was the USA president between 1861 and 1865 and who steered America through the Civil War and abolished slavery.
