British Prime Minister David Cameron has launched today, Saturday the battle to persuade the British to vote in favour of staying in the EU, announcing the holding of a referendum on the 23rd June.
In the wake of the agreement in Brussels with his European counterparts , the British leader reiterated that the UK will be “stronger, safer and more prosperous within a reformed European Union”, during a brief Speaking before the 10 Downing Street, after a Cabinet meeting with Ministers for two hours.
“One of the most important decisions of our lives”
“We are close to one of the most important decisions of our lives,” said David Cameron, who plays out his place in history.
Favouring the retention of his country in the EU, he stressed that it “gives us the best of both worlds”, considering that the leave would be “a dive into uncertainty” and threaten the economy and security of the United Kingdom.
The agreement with skepticism
The results looks very evenly matched at present, with polls suggest that 53%, are supporters of a British EU exit in January, outstripping those wanting to stay in the EU (47%), according to a survey of the institute Survation.
If the agreement he negotiated in Brussels was met with skepticism by the conservative press David Cameron has received support from a fellow minister, Therese May, who is known as Eurosceptic, who is backing the yes campaign.
In the wake of the cabinet meeting, five ministers announced their intention to campaign for release of the EU, including, Michael Gove and Iain Duncan Smith who have declared themselves as Eurosceptic members of the powerful current within the Tory party.
