Cameron pleads with London Mayor Johnson to back EU membership

Prime Minister David Cameron made a last-ditch appeal to London Mayor Boris Johnson to support Britain staying in the EU Sunday as he battles to make his case to eurosceptics ahead of a June 23 referendum. If reports suggesting the mayor will back so-called 'Brexit' are correct, it would deal a major blow to Cameron two days after he sealed a deal in Brussels to reset Britain's ties with the European Union. Cameron also made clear his battle lines for the referendum, arguing that Britain is "safer" and "stronger" in Europe despite eurosceptic claims that the EU is bloated and unnecessary.
