EU Referendum Related Content

The EU Referendum gained massive media coverage in February 2016 when it was originally announced. Held on June 23rd, 2016 it managed to capture the attention of many, inspiring nearly 71.21 percent of the nation to get up and vote, leaving around 13 million people at home.

The decision was hugely important and given power from the voters the EU referendum was able to change the political landscape of the nation for generations to come. Given the enormity of the decision it has been criticised that politicians did a poor job of explaining what the referendum actual meant. Many people even now are still not certain as to what their vote actually signified. The question posed to voters on the Ballot paper asked whether they wishes for the UK to leave or remain in the European Union. However, many people have claimed since that it was not clear what leaving the EU would do for the economic, social and political state of the nation.

Changes to the Nation?

The decision of ‘Brexit’ was made by 51.89 percent of voters and started in motion a series of negotiations and decisions that have still not been finalised now in 2018. It resulted in the rapid resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron and the employment of Theresa May causing many a controversial debate. However even with the disruption and unrest caused by the vote the UK is scheduled to officially leave the EU at 11pm UK time on Friday 29 March, 2019.
