Boris Johnson's backing for Brexit pits him directly against Prime Minister David Cameron — an old acquaintance who won the job that many thought the charismatic mayor of London was always destined for. Both men are in the Conservative party and were elected MPs in 2001 but their ties go much further back to the 1970s when they attended the prestigious Eton College school and then Oxford University. The right-wing Daily Telegraph said Monday it was "Cameron's worst fear", while the left-leaning Daily Mirror said it was a "Dagger in Cam's heart" and the Guardian called it a "humiliation" for the prime minister.
