MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to a survey by the Ipsos Mori for the Evening Standard newspaper, 48 percent are voting for the country to leave the bloc.
On Thursday, the British public are voting on a referendum on whether their country should stay in or leave the European Union. The referendum was scheduled after UK Prime Minister David Cameron and the leaders of the 27 EU member states agreed in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc.
Brexit supporters argue that EU membership has eroded the country’s independence to legislate, direct its economy and control its borders. Opponents warn that leaving the European Union could deeply harm the UK economy.
