Johnson hails 'glorious' Brexit as G20 issues warning

London Mayor Boris Johnson on Friday launched a scathing attack on Brussels, urging Britons to vote for a “glorious alternative” free from “the whims of unelected bureaucrats”, as official campaigning began ahead of a referendum on Britain’s EU membership. With G20 leading economies warning of the threat to global growth if Britain voted to leave, Johnson told a rally in Manchester, northwest England, Britain could thrive outside the bloc. “It’s time for us in this country to speak up for millions of people around Europe, tens of millions, who think like we do, who share our anxieties, who are fed up with the remoteness of Brussels,” Johnson told the crowd.
