Britons will vote to shape the future of the United Kingdom, and potentially that of Europe, this Thursday, 23rd of June 2016, in an election which has been hailed as more important than the UK’s last general election. The election, referred to as the UK’s EU referendum, gives Britons the right to decide whether to stay in the EU or leave the bloc altogether. The campaign led by the two sides, ‘Remain’ and ‘Leave’ proponents, started out as a harmonious debate centered on the economy, National Health Service and immigration. However, not long after, the campaigning turned caustic, with the ‘Remain’ and ‘Leave’ sides warning of economic disaster and uncontrolled immigration respectively. So much that a Member of Parliament and mother of two young children was murdered in cold blood in the street of her own electoral district in northern England on Thursday 16th of June 2016 while campaigning for the UK to remain in the EU. Witnesses to Joanne Cox’s (the victim’s name) attack said the accused was heard saying “Britain first, keep Britain independent, Britain always comes first”. Such comments added to the speculation that the murder was politically-motivated, making it a potentially defining moment in the referendum.
