Revision as of 16:15, 1 June 2016

Brexit is a campaign slogan for 'Britain's Exit' from the European Union. The British people will vote for the first time on remaining in membership of the EU by referendum held on June 23rd, 2016. Passions are running high as a sizable bloc of United Kingdom voters want out of the European Union. Prime Minister David Cameron is anti-Brexit in his commitment to staying in the EU. Former London mayor Boris Johnson has joined the Brexit campaign.

Polling indicates a tight race, with 44% preferring to stay (anti-Brexit) and 42% supporting leaving the EU (Brexit), as of April 17, 2016.[1] Two weeks after Obama gave his support to Cameron and chided Britain to stay in the EU, a survey says Brexit gained 3% who want out. [2]

Most people believe if the Brexit campaign is successful, the 28-nation EU economic and political alliance is doomed. As such, financial giants are warning of credit downgrades.

Eligible voters

  • Voters must be 18 or older
  • British, Irish or Commonwealth citizen who resides in Britain.
  • British nationals who have lived overseas for less than 15 years can also vote.
