Was David Cameron in favour of Brexit or remain?
According to the research that we have done, we believe that David Cameron called the Brexit referendum to show that the country was in favour of remain like him. To his surprise 52% of the population voted to leave the European Union making the majority of U.K. citizens in favour of Brexit.
Why did David Cameron call the Brexit referendum?
The right wing of the Conservative party and UKIP had been complaining frequently about the damage that the European Union has caused to the country so he decided to call a referendum , asking the country what their opinion was ( Brexit or remain).
When did the Brexit campaign begin?
Some politicians were becoming annoyed with the influence that the EU was having on the UK and wanted the matter looked into further.
In June 2012, a little less than 100 Conservative MPs called for a referendum " on the nature of our relation with the European Union" but this was rejected.
Calls for a referendum were still frequent from within the Conservative party. David Cameron promised that if they won the general election in 2015 that there would be a referendum on the topic of Brexit before the end of 2017.
In February 2016 David Cameron made it known that the referendum would be held on the 23rd of June that same year, and it did.
The build up to the Brexit referendum
David Cameron campaigned for remain up until the 23rd June 2016 ( when the referendum was held ) and was shocked when 52% of the population voted to leave the European Union. He then resigned from his role and Theresa May became Prime Minister.
We think that we have used reasoning and speaking up as our BNC skills.
