On Thursday June 5, 1975, the people of Britain were asked to vote "Yes" or "No" to membership of what was then called "The Common Market." Pamphlets were sent out to everyone by the Government of Prime Minister Harold Wilson. The official Government pamphlet read: "Britain's New Deal in Europe: Her Majesty's Government have decided to recommend to the British People to vote for staying in the Community." Now, over forty years later another referendum is to be held onThursday, 23rd of June 2016, and the Government of David Cameron has sent out a pamphlet with the heading "Why the Government believes that voting to remain in the European Union is the best decision for the UK."
