British lawmakers, businesses launch campaign to leave EU

A cross-party campaign to take Britain out of the European Union launched on Thursday, backed by three major political donors ahead of a referendum expected by 2017. The “Vote Leave” campaign revealed on its website that it would be run by lawmakers from a range of political parties, including from the Conservative party of Prime Minister David Cameron, the opposition Labour party, and the eurosceptic UK Independence Party. “I will vote to leave so that we can end the supremacy of EU law and the British public can take back control,” said UKIP lawmaker Douglas Carswell in a statement.
