The actual EU referendum question on the ballot paper.
Here it is. Please read it very carefully.
Remain a member of the European Union
Leave the European Union
(Unfortunately the image of th actual ballot paper did not upload).
So a very simple question but what does it mean?
Well, it means: Should the UK remain a member of the EU or leave the EU? End of.
So if we answer ‘Leave’, it means stopping ‘free movement’? No, where does it mention that? Read the question.
And getting out of the single market (which is separate to EU membership)? No. Read the question.
But if we answer ‘Leave’, surely it means the UK stops paying a contribution to trade with the EU? No. Read the question.
But if we answer ‘Leave’, surely it means we stop all those silly and expensive regulations? No, where does it say that on the ballot paper? Read the question.
The question was solely about giving up (or not) membership of the European Union.
