UK tabloid urges Britain to free itself from 'dictatorial Brussels'

The UK’s Brexit campaign has been given a boost by media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.

His Sun tabloid is urging its readers to quit the European Union as opinion polls suggest momentum is swinging in favour of the ‘leave’ camp.

The UK’s biggest newspaper says
“we must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.”

The British people will vote in a referendum next week (June 23) either to remain in the EU or withdraw from the bloc.

Dual nationals

Many Britons living in France are applying for French nationality .. including Collette Taylor-Jones. She was worried about having to apply for a residence permit if Britain leaves the bloc.

“I decided to change my nationality when the whole ‘Brexit’ story started because I actually was kind of worried that I would have to ask for what we call a ‘titre de sejour’ [residence permit] to be able to keep on living and working in a country where I’ve been my whole life,” says Taylor-Jones.

If Britain does leave the EU, it may be able to stay in the European Economic Area (EEA) alongside non-EU member states Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

At this stage, there is a lot of uncertainty. A withdrawal from the bloc would likely take years to negotiate.
