Too Close To Call: Australians Vote To Join EU

As of press time, the vote is too close to call.

Those advocating for a ‘yes’ vote believe that while Australia is too far away from Europe, it shares many more of European traits and politics than it does with those of its Pacific neighbors. They also believe that with the UK leaving EU, the 28-nation alliance needs another English-speaking member, albeit with a much better accent than Great Britain.

The “no” supporters maintain that Australia will have better political, economic and cultural progress if it remains unattached to Europe.

If the “yes” votes prevail and Australia will be formally accepted into the EU, the country will change its official name to Eustralia.
