After 30 hours of the long knives in Brussels and a 140 minute Cabinet meeting, we have a deal and a date. On Thursday 23 June, Britons will vote on whether we stay in or leave the European Union.
We usually expect our politicians to make decisions that affect our lives for five years – the life expectancy of a Government. But this decision will affect not only our lives, but those of future generations. It is a huge moment for Britain and for Europe – with enormous implications for business.
To help you navigate the referendum campaign, Edelman will be producing a series of briefing notes as we count down to polling day. You can find the first of these notes here.
