Final Kingdom

AP - Cameron: Britain's referendum on EU membership to be June 23
AP reports: "It's been three years in the making, but a June 23 date has finally been set for the momentous 'in or out' British vote on whether to abandon the 28-nation European Union. [...] Britain has always remained somewhat apart from the European project, preferring to keep its own currency rather than adopt the euro and declining to join the passport-free Schengen zone in place in much of Europe. The June vote will come as the EU struggles to cope with a sustained immigration crisis that last year brought more than 1 million people fleeing war and poverty to its shores."
