POLL: Should the UK remain a member of the European Union?
A possible Brexit is currently a hot topic, so PinkNews is polling its readers on whether they support one, or want to stay in the EU.
Earlier today, David Cameron emerged from a Cabinet Office meeting to announce that the referendum on whether to stay in, or leave the EU will take place on 23 June.
In his statement, he said: “I know there will be many passionate arguments over the months ahead. And individual Cabinet Ministers will have the freedom to campaign in a personal capacity as they wish.”
He added: “We are approaching one of the biggest decisions this country will face in our lifetimes. Whether to remain in a reformed European Union – or to leave.
“This choice goes to the heart of the kind of country we want to be. And the future that we want for our children. This is about how we trade with neighbouring countries to create jobs, prosperity and financial security for our families. And it is about how we co-operate to keep our people safe and our country strong.”
He concluded: “You will decide. And whatever your decision, I will do my best to deliver it.”
The Prime Minister then said he planned to commence the action set out by the Referendum Act, starting on Monday.
