Boris Hits Back After Obama's Brexit Warning

Anti-EU campaigner Boris Johnson has hit back at the Stay side following US President Barack Obama's Brexit warning.

The London mayor, one of the most high-profile figures in the Vote Leave camp, said the rival grouping "think they've bombed us into submission".

But Mister Johnson suggested they "think it'south game over", were "crowing too soon" and could be "ignoring the resilience and thoughtfulness of many middle-of-the-road" voters.

His remarks in his Daily Telegraph column arrive after the president said Britain may have to wait a decade for a free trade deal with the US if it votes to quit the EU on twenty-third June.

Mister Johnson claimed a previously undecided senior public servant had been so outraged at Mister Obama'south earlier "back of the queue" admonition that he'd decided to vote to leave.

The potential following Tory boss also launched a fresh attack on the EU, saying the "euro crisis is distant from over, and that the EU remains a gigantic engine of work destruction".

And he claimed Prime Minister David Cameron achieved "two thirds of diddly squat" in his negotiations on EU reform in the lead up to the referendum.

UKIP boss and Leave campaigner Nigel Farage has accused Mister Obama of on why the UK should stay in the EU.

Another Out campaigner Michael Gove has warned Britain will be subject to a migration "free-for-all" if it stays in the EU, with millions more people from countries including Turkey and Albania set to connect an expanded union in the future.

The Justice Secretary also told the Times that the NHS will face "unquantifiable strain" if Britain remains an EU member.

Mister Johnson has been widely criticised for suggesting that Mister Obama'south Kenyan heritage might've given him negative feelings towards Britain.

But Labour former frontbencher Chuka Umunna told Sky'south Murnaghan show: ".

"For any Londoner, for our Mayor of London to lift the issue of the President of the United States' ethnicity and then very publicly have to be slapped down by that President for doing so... it'south an embarrassment.

"This man is simply not fit to keep the office that he clearly aspires to, which is the Prime Minister of our country."

Mister Johnson, whose article contained a reference to Mister Obama allegedly removing a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House, wrote in Friday'south The Sun: "Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan president'south ancestral displeasure of the British empire - of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender."

But speaking at the Foreign Office alongside the Prime Minister, Mister Obama .

"Right exterior the door of the Treaty Room, so that I look it every day - including on weekends when I'm going into that office to look a basketball game - the primary image I look is a bust of Winston Churchill. I like the guy," he said.
