Britain has voted to leave the European Union (EU). The UK had a referendum yesterday to Remain or Leave the EU 28-nation bloc, with majority of people in England and Wales voting for Leave while Scotland and Northern Ireland voted for ‘Remain’.
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron has decided to step down in October after he campaigned vigorously for Britain to stay in the EU.
He said, “The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected.” Mr Cameron spoke outside 10 Downing Street to concede defeat in the Brexit vote.
The Leave campaigners, spearheaded by Nigel Farage (leader of the UK Independence Party – UKIP) and Boris Johnson (former Mayor of London) have argued that leaving the European Union was best for the British people.
