    The referendum question will be: Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

    'Remain a member', the word member gives the voter the impression that it is prestigious for the uk to be a member of the EU, because being a member of most things is prestigious, isn't it...

    We associate 'membership' with prestige, success, status, money etc...

    So the question is kinda baised imo.

    Instead, it should be 'should the uk be inside the EU'?
