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”.

“We are approaching one of the biggest decisions this country will face in our lifetimes… This goes to the heart of what we want our country to be and the future we want for our children,” he said.


It’s a weaselly deal by a weaselly puppet…

EU deal: What David Cameron asked for… and what he actually got

The deal for a “new settlement” for Britain in Europe has been signed in Brussels – did David Cameron get what he wanted?

    That photo! What is wrong with Caneron’s skin? No man has a complexion like that. It’s as if he’s been dipped in Mylar, then buffed to a high gloss. Weird.

    • Makeup!

      Cameron is a toff.

        Shaving that face must be like I e skating.

    It’s time to form a new alliance of English speaking countries.

    • Same problematic leadership in all of them – so what’s the use?

    England is screwed either way. An exit now would trash their economy but allow them to control their own destiny. It will also likely end in war. Staying just means they are signing their own death warrent.

    • Exit gives Britain a fighting chance of survival, the right to decide its laws and immigration policies for itself. And it would help the rest of Europe opt for a breakup of the EU. The EU has become the foremost danger to Europe – as for example its immigration policies are making evident.

        It gives them a chance, but not much of one. I think it’s too late for England either way.

    It won’t go anywhere. If I remember correctly, both France and Ireland voted against joining the EU, and their better just kept holding referendums until they got the answer they wanted, or ignored the results.

    • Yes, I’m afraid you’re right. Democracy in Europe is close to dead.
