Boris Johnson has “electrified the referendum race” by backing the No vote to take Britain out of the European Union, says the Times . The mayor of London stood on the steps of his London home and told vast ranks of media:

“After a great deal of heartache I don’t think there’s anything else I can do: I will be advocating Vote Leave… because I want a better deal for the people of this country,” he said. “To save them money and to take back control, that’s really, I think, what this is all about.”

Earlier in the day, David Cameron had told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show :

“I think the prospect of linking arms with Nigel Farage and George Galloway and taking a leap into the dark is the wrong step for our country and if Boris and if others really care about being able to get things done in our world then the EU is one of the ways in which we get them done.”

Johnson counters in his Daily Telegraph  column:

“We will hear a lot in the coming weeks about the risks of this option; the risk to the economy, the risk to the City of London, and so on; and though those risks cannot be entirely dismissed I think they are likely to be exaggerated. We have heard this kind of thing before, about the decision to opt out of the euro, and the very opposite turned out to be the case… We will be told that a Brexit would embolden Putin, though it seems to me he is more likely to be emboldened, for instance, by the West’s relative passivity in Syria.”

The Mirror says Boris is a “RAT” who has “humiliated his old Eton chum David Cameron”.  It is a “cynical bid to become Tory leader” when Cameron stands down. Cynicism in politics? Never!

Over two more pages, the Mirror says Boris has stuck a “dagger in Cam’s heart”, “heaping humiliations” on the PM.

The Mail agrees. “Boris Johnson dealt a dagger blow to David Cameron,” the paper states at the top of on the front page.

Knife-crime remains rife in Broken Britain.

The Mirror invites Labour stalwart Alan Johnson to write in favour of staying in Europe beneath the headline, “A vote to Remains is the real patriotic choice.”
