Following are excerpts from leading Leave campaigner Boris Johnson's article in The Daily Telegraph newspaper on Britain's vote to leave the European Union, the economy and what the future holds. On the Brexit vote: "It is said that those who voted Leave were mainly driven by anxieties about immigration. After meeting thousands of people in the course of the campaign, I can tell you that the number one issue was control – a sense that British democracy was being undermined by the EU system, and that we should restore to the people that vital power: to kick out their rulers at elections, and to choose new ones." "I believe that millions of people who voted Leave were also inspired by the belief that Britain is a great country, and that outside the job-destroying coils of EU bureaucracy we can survive and thrive as never before.

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne arrives for a news conference in central LondonBy William Schomberg and Ana Nicolaci da Costa LONDON (Reuters) - The leaders of the campaign to get Britain out of the European Union sought to ease concerns about the country's uncertain economic future by giving public backing to Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and Chancellor George Osborne. In the run-up to last week's referendum, Carney and Osborne incensed Leave campaigners by warning that a vote to pull out of the EU would hit the economy. Carney faced a call for his resignation from one lawmaker from the ruling Conservative Party during the campaign, and last week the official Vote Leave campaign released a video attacking Carney over his previous employment with Goldman Sachs.
