EU referendum Stronger In
(AFP) – Reeling from the murder of MP Jo Cox, the EU referendum campaigns resumed Sunday, with just four days to go until the critical vote that will shape Britain’s future. The Remain and Leave camps suspended campaigning for three days after the killing of Cox on Thursday. A 52-year-old man has appeared in court charged with her murder. But with the polls too close to call, leaders were to hit the television studios on Sunday to begin their final push for votes. Prime Minister David Cameron, who wants Britain to stay in the European Union, said the country was facing an “an existential choice” from which there would be “no turning back”. Meanwhile Britain’s Sunday newspapers picked sides in their final editions before the referendum. The Mail on Sunday and The Observer gave their support to the Remain camp, while The Sunday Times and The Sunday Telegraph broadsheets backed quitting the EU. Resuming the campaign, Cameron said the British economy “hangs in the balance”, with trade and investment set to suffer in the event of a Leave vote and a “probable recession” that would leave the UK “permanently poorer”. “If you’re not sure, don’t take the risk of leaving.
