BRITISH PRIME MINISTER David Cameron promised today to hold a referendum after the next general election on whether or not Britain should remain a member of the European Union.

Cameron said that if the public decided the country should exit the union, “it would be a one-way ticket” and the French government has warned that the move is  a “dangerous” one.

Last week, in an interview with Euronews, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said it would be “catastrophic” for Britain to leave the EU but calls for the Irish government to take the same action have been made here in recent years. We want to know what you think.
