Brexit Stage Right: EU referendum to take place on 23 June, David Cameron confirms

David Cameron has called his referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU for 23 June, after the cabinet agreed to campaign to stay in.

Speaking from outside Downing Street, the prime minister said leaving the EU would “threaten our economic and national security”.
