The UK referendum: a timetable


Voting booths

 – June 22, 2016

The day Brussels has long expected and maybe feared has come.

On Thursday (23 June), Britons will go to the polls to decide whether they want to remain or leave the European Union after a 43 year-long marriage of convenience.

A vote to leave could mortally wound the integration project, which has dominated the European political theatre since WWII.

Even a vote to stay is likely to make Europeans think twice about their common future.
