ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) London mayor Boris Johnson is all for Britain leaving the EU. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MAYOR OF LONDON AND LEAVE CAMPAIGNER, BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "It's now or never. If we fail to make the change now, then we will continue to be like passengers locked in the back of a minicab with a wonky satnav, driven by a driver who doesn't have perfect command of English and going in a direction we frankly don't want to go." Those against "Brexit" say it will damage its economy. Opinion polls show voters are split almost 50-50. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MAYOR OF LONDON AND LEAVE CAMPAIGNER, BORIS JOHNSON, SAYING: "If we hold our nerve and we are not cowed and we vote for freedom and we vote for democracy on June 23, then I believe that this country will prosper and thrive as never before and yes, it will be Independence Day on June 24. Vote not just for a better Britain, but for a better Europe too."
