‘In’ or ‘Out’ - make your vote count
After months of talking, campaigning, bickering and a lot of antagonism it’s polling day today (Thursday) in the EU Referendum. Tomorrow (Friday) we will find out whether the arguments of David Cameron and George Osborne have been more convincing than Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage. After all the scare stories emanating from both ‘in’ and ‘out’ camps it’s now up the British public to decide whether they think we should stay inside the EU or plot a new course outside it. You will have heard many of the pro and con arguments from both camps, particularly in recent weeks as the campaign has reached its peak and it’s up to you as individuals to decide which way you vote. But the most important thing today is that you DO vote. A high turnout is predicted but make sure that is the case. This poll is probably the most important one in decades. The Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 provides for general elections in the UK to be held on the first Thursday in May every five years. So whichever way you vote you know you will have a chance to vote again in a maximum of five years, often less. But the EU Referendum is a one-off - it’s a generation defining poll that will determine Britain’s direction for the lifetime of most of us and beyond. And unlike general elections where you might have a choice of numerous political candidates this is a straight black and white vote. So whether you’re a Brexit-eer or a Remain-ster do one thing today – go to your local polling station and cast your vote!
