UK To Vote Against EU Exit In Potential 2016 Referendum

On the back of Barak Obama saying that “EU membership is necessary to keep the UK’s global influence” William Hill are offering 11/10 that an in/out EU referendum takes place on British soil before the end of June 2016. 

Should such a referendum take place, the odds suggest the British public will vote to stay in the EU, offering odds of just 2/9 that a pro-EU vote is the result. It is 3/1 that the UK votes to leave the EU.

“Obama has spoken and while it looks as if an in/out referendum will take place, it is highly likely that the UK will vote to stay in,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

When will the EU referendum take place: 11/10 before the end of June 2016; 3/1 July-December 2016; 4/1 January-June 2017; 4/1 July 2017 or later

Will there be an in/out referendum on EU membership by 2019: 1/16 yes; 7/1 no

What will be the outcome of the potential UK EU membership referendum be: 2/9 to stay in; 3/1 to leave
