On Thursday 23 June, Britain will vote in the much-discussed Referendum on whether or not we, as a nation, should remain within the European Union (EU) or exit. Prime Minister David Cameron has outlined in some detail how leaving would create a “profound economic shock”.
Casting of votes in the forthcoming EU Referendum will almost certainly represent the biggest political and economic decision the British public will make in their lifetimes.
Many people are sceptical about the EU. From the present Government’s point of view, that’s why the Conservative Party is (and has been) determined to keep Britain out of the Euro. Campaigners in the Leave movement would like to see Britain move away from not just Europe, but also the Single Market.
“That would mean turning our backs on the largest marketplace in the world,” explained Prime Minister David Cameron. “Something Lady Margaret Thatcher helped to create and Britain has championed ever since. The evidence is unequivocal. Such a move would place our economy in serious danger and make the country permanently poorer.”
