Thursday, June 23rd is the day voters in Great Britain will decide whether their country will leave the European Union, an outcome dubbed “Brexit”. The debate leading up to the vote is becoming fierce, and long simmering disagreements within the Conservative Party to “Leave” or “Remain” in the EU are now boiling over.
Prime Minister David Cameron is leading the Remain campaign. He is receiving verbal support from big business and large banks that have lobbyists encamped in Brussels working on their behalf. Support for the Remain campaign has also come from sources outside the UK including the IMF and Barack Obama.
