Britons went to the polls on Thursday to decide on a referendum that will decide whether or not the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union.

The question that was asked is "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?" Voters had to tick a box either next to "Remain a member of the European Union," or "Leave the European Union" option.
The participation was high and the results are clear. We must now work together to ensure that we can deliver a stable future for Britain.— Tom Tugendhat MP (@TomTugendhat) 24 июня 2016 г.
This will be a different Britain. We must work together to ensure its for the better. Financial pains likely but vote says its worth paying— Martin Lewis (@MartinSLewis) 24 июня 2016 г.
Brexit supporters argued that EU membership has diminished the country’s independence to legislate, direct its economy and control its borders. Opponents warned that leaving the bloc could severely harm the UK economy.
