Referendum on knife-edge as Boris joins exit campaign
Boris Johnson will campaign to leave the European Union, he announced today, in a move that will electrify the referendum and cause deep dismay in Downing Street.
The Mayor of London, who twice won City Hall in a city renowned for its Labour support, decided to end frenzied speculation after ignoring a personal plea from the prime minister to back “remain” on national television this morning.
Mr Johnson is set to argue that Britain needs to reclaim control of its borders, restore sovereignty to Westminster and end vast payments to Brussels.
His intervention is key since recent polling suggests that Mr Johnson’s support for Brexit could cancel out David Cameron’s cheerleading for continuing membership, putting the contest on a knife-edge.
