One week from today British voters will decide whether they want to stay within the European Union or break away from it.

The debate between the "Leave" and "Stronger In" campaigns is contentious, but the question on the ballot is straightforward: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"

MPR News Host Kerri Miller spoke with John Peet and Rachel Rizzo about the social, economic and security issues being raised within Britain and abroad concerning the potential "Brexit."

John Peet is a Political Editor at the Economist and co-author of co-author of "Unhappy Union: How the Euro Crisis - and Europe - Can Be Fixed."
