UK Brexiteers grab limelight, three weeks before EU vote

UK Independence Party (UKIP) party leader Nigel Farage, who heads the UK Independence Party, said he would board a trawler at the head of a 60-boat procession on the Thames to campaign for BrexitAnti-EU campaigners in Britain seized the initiative Friday, ahead of June 23’s referendum, with a leading advocate slamming “unelected, unaccountable elites” and UKIP’s leader vowing to lead a Brexit flotilla up the Thames. Michael Gove’s grilling on Sky News television, in which he attacked the “invincible arrogance of Europe’s elites”, came 24 hours after Prime Minister David Cameron, who is campaigning for Britain to remain in the European Union, endured a bruising encounter on the same channel. Gove is justice minister in Cameron’s government and was one of his closest allies before announcing he would join the “Leave” campaign.
