Brexit: All you need to know about the UK leaving the EU

EU referendum: Which type of person wants to leave, and who will be voting to remain? EU referendum pros and cons: Should Britain vote to leave Europe? On 23 June, the UK finally settled the question that's been rumbling close to the surface of British politics for a generation: should the country remain within the European Union or go it alone.

EU referendum pros and cons: Should Britain vote to leave Europe?

The final result went 52 to 48 per cent in favour of Brexit - so what are the pros and cons of leaving the European Union? How we got here The Conservative's general election victory last year activated a manifesto pledge to hold a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union by the end of 2017. David Cameron made the promise at a time when he was under pressure from Eurosceptic backbenchers – and when the Tories appeared to be losing votes to Ukip. Most political commentators agree that, given a free hand, he would not have wanted a referendum. Last winter, the Prime Minister embarked on a tour of EU capitals as he sought to renegotiate Britain's terms of membership, which concluded at a summit in February.

Debates - Wednesday, 8 June 2016 - Mid-term review of the Investment Plan (debate)

Just have a look around at the empty seats this morning. And the idea that tens of billions of private capital are going to arrive for joint projects with you guys frankly I think is pie in the sky. Though happily Mr Cameron, of course, has committed GBP 6 billion of our money to this project and if ever you are short of money just ask Mr Cameron because he always pays up.

"A simple but vital piece of legislation to deliver on our promise to give the British people the final say on our EU membership" - Speeches

Mr Speaker, this is a simple, but vital, piece of legislation. It has one clear purpose: to deliver on our promise to give the British people the final say on our EU membership in an in/out referendum by the end of 2017. Mr Speaker, for those who were present in the last Parliament, today’s debate will be tinged with a sense of déjà vu: we have, of course, debated this Bill before.

So before I start, I would like to pay tribute to my Hon friend the Member for Stockton South. PM speech at Caterpillar on the EU referendum: 28 April 2016 - Speeches. Accessible Media Player by Nomensa The timeline slider below uses WAI ARIA.

PM speech at Caterpillar on the EU referendum: 28 April 2016 - Speeches

Please use the documentation for your screen reader to find out more. Prime Minister Thank you very much for the welcome, great to see so many of you here. I think this is probably the biggest one of these I’ve ever done so thank you for coming. Now, as I’ve said, I think this is the biggest question for our country that we’ve faced in 20 or 30 years. First is, I believe Britain will be stronger if we stay inside the European Union.

Second thing is I think will be safer. But the third argument I think is the most important and the most crucial which is that we are better off as an economy, better off for jobs, better off for investment if we stay inside a reformed European Union. And that trade deal doesn’t cover services. Now you’re going to hear lots of arguments. Question Right, very good question. Why does this matter so much for Britain? Thank you. Well, I would argue it is accountable. Prime Minister. Right. EU referendum outcome: PM statement, 24 June 2016 - Speeches.
