Brexit final campaigns as polls open

Brexit final campaigns as polls open

United Kingdom

Polls for the Brexit polls have already opened in Britain but campaigners spent the last 24 hours going the length and breadth of England trying to persuade that elusive ‘undecided voter’.

“Who elected those people Nobody elected them. Do we want to be sucked into a federal super-state like that? No! We absolutely don’t!”, said Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London.

Johnson, is a favourite to replace David Cameron in the event of a Brexit.

Fellow Leave campaigner Justice Secretary Michael Gove drove home the message of saving Britain’s democracy casting Brussels as domineering and out of touch.

“Ultimately people will have a chance tomorrow to take back control of our democracy and I think that is a very very powerful argument that’s resonating with people here in Portsmouth,” he said.

The debate has boiled down to two issues: the economy and immigration but as one voter said “ I’ll decide when Im in the voting booth.

Final results of the polls are expected on Friday, June 24.
