[en] On 5th June 1975, barely two years after entering, UK citizens were asked through a referendum by a Labour government whether they wanted to remain part of the EU. The answer was a resounding yes. Forty-one years later, on 23rd June 2016, UK citizens were asked the same thing by a Conservative government. This time, Brexit ensued. This thesis will examine what led from one referendum to the other, and the issues that developed in between. The final objective is to try and determine how these issues interacted with one another to result in Brexit and in tensions within the UK itself.
