LONDON, June 23 , (APP): June 23 , 2016: Most Important day in 60 years history of 28 Nations EU

 

Millions of Britons voted  Thursday in a bitterly-fought, knife-edge referendum that could  pull the island nation out of the EU and spark the biggest crisis  in the bloc's 60-year history.

 

A record 46.5 million voters have registered to decide   Britain 's future in the 28-nation European Union, which was born  out of a determination to unite in lasting peace after the carnage  of two world wars.

 

Across London and southeast England, many voters braved  torrential rain to have their say in a battle fought on two  main fronts: immigration and the economy.

 

The once-in-a-generation referendum asks: "Should the United  Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the  European Union?"

 

In one of the last opinion polls, "Remain" took the lead  with 48 percent against "Leave" on 42 percent. The remaining  voters were undecided, according to the telephone survey  by ComRes for the Daily Mail and ITV News.
