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.
