Britons head to the polls Thursday in a historic vote on their country's membership of the EU, with Euroskeptics claiming the referendum could herald "independence day," while Prime Minister David Cameron warns Brexit could spell economic catastrophe.Cameron and his Euroskeptic opponents made final pitches for wavering voters Wednesday on the eve of a defining referendum on European Union membership with the outcome still too close to call. The Leave camp was on 45 percent, just one point ahead of Remain, with 9 percent undecided, in the last poll published by Opinium, which called it a "statistical tie".European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker warned there would be no further renegotiation whatever the result Thursday, after EU leaders reached a deal on a new settlement for Britain in February.Cameron, who called the referendum under pressure from his own Conservative party and from the insurgent UKIP, urged voters to remain in the club Britain joined in 1973 .Polling stations open at 0600 GMT on Thursday June 23 and close at 2100 GMT with 46.5 million electors eligible to vote.World leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama, Chinese President Xi Jinping and NATO and Commonwealth allies have urged Britain to remain in the EU.
