Conservative Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said he has decided “after a huge amount of heartache” to campaign for Britain to leave the EU.
He said the EU was eroding British sovereignty and PM David Cameron’s reform deal would not bring about the fundamental change that was needed.
His decision pits him against Mr Cameron, who says Britain will be “safer and stronger” within the EU…
Mr Johnson, MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, … said the EU was a “political project” that was in “real danger of getting out of proper democratic control”.
He said UK sovereignty – the power of Britain to govern itself – was being “very greatly eroded” by EU institutions, with “too much judicial activism” and legislation coming out of the EU.
Democracy has a friend.
