Someone who is informed about Brexit pls help me out--

By the time you read this, the result may be in -
but what I want to know is why was there this referendum--
ie - did some group bring it up, did the government, how did it come to be?

Is it the first time there has been a referendum since Britain has been in the EU?

thanks.

1. When the current PM got into power, it was part of what he agreed to do...

Sort of like if Hillary agreed to support a $15/hr wage to bring Bernie voters into the fold.

It's not the first time... well, on the EU as it stands now it is, but there was a vote years ago that was effectively the same thing regarding the predecessor to the EU.
