David Cameron has announced that on 23 June the British people will vote in a referendum to decide whether or not Britain should remain a member of the European Union. Opinion polls show the result could be close. Will the vote see Britain become the first country to exit the EU? What would happen following a vote to leave? Will the result settle the European question in UK politics? And what could the referendum mean for the USA and the transatlantic relationship?
