CNN is launching its coverage of the United Kingdom's referendum on whether to stay or keave the European Union which takes place on Thursday 23rd June 2016. Live programming on The State Opening of Parliament by Her Majesty the Queen is being led by Max Foster in Westminster. CNNMoney Europe Editor Nina Dos Santos is at a Siemens factory in Chippenham, England covering the business impact of the upcoming referendum. Hala Gorani takes "The World Right Now" to the White Cliffs of Dover tonight for a EU referendum special. Although Richard Quest is currently in China covering the country's technology revolution promos show that Richard will be in the UK in the run up to the referendum when he goes on tour in a caravan seeking the views of local people in what is being called "#drivewithquest" - similar to Richard's "Big Red Bus" when he drove around London on election night last year. You can see some of the images of the caravan on the Instagram account of the creative agency which designed it: https://www.instagra...readcollective/

Nice. I think you're in for a chance in Glasgow of Questy visiting then. Will you go and meet him if possible?

Maybe, I would be surprised if he makes it out of the South-West to the North nevermind across the border.

I think he might, he seems to like travelling. It would be ignorant of CNN to ignore anywhere outside the south of England. I doubt anyone will know who he is though, so people will be thinking who the hell is this crazy man, lol.

I know he's from Liverpool so he might go there to visit, and the advert seems to say that he'll be visiting places other than cities.

I will have to try and see the advert then.

Damn CNN, they make me mad by wall to wall US election coverage, but are now intrigued by this Questy tour thing.

But being British, I chose to watch CNNI's UK Election coverage last year over all home broadcasters. CNNI provided fun and straight to the point coverage. If only Becky was also back in London, she could have been on the bus with Richard. :)

Amazingly I found the US eection coverage more interesting than dBrexit coverage yesterday.  The Brexit coverage seemed to different people reiterating the same arguments.  At least the election coverage would have new news and, therefore, new discussions.  The Egyptian plane disappearance is more interesting than either for obvious reasons.

That would be because British politics is so dull. They're mostly all spiteful and incapable of respecting other people's views. They never focus on their own policies, but will only ever attack the opponents. It may seem US politics is the same, but at least they're entertaining with it.

Becky Anderson is in London covering Brexit!

Great!

Even Max Foster doing a great job presenting dayside London shows from on location in London.

Just a very nice relief from the endless US coverage elsewhere in the schedule.

Becky Anderson anchoring a live CNN Newsroom from London today also, and now on with Maggie Lake. Good times.

This is the CNNI I know and love, not the trash that comes out from Atlanta these days.

What a travesty that Becky is not in the Brexit promo, considering she's part of the coverage.

I wonder if Errol would have been there if he was still with CNN, considering he was in London for the election last year.

We have Hala and Richard hosting in the studio, and Christiane live in Westminster.

We even have live reports from Hong Kong coming up.

Enjoying Christiane's segments from Westminster. Shame Hala and Richard are not outside the studio.

I'm assuming Max and Becky will be hosting on Friday.

When Richard walked to the touchscreen, the floor camera remotely just  moved into position. I have never seen it actually moving before.

 

Anyway, CNN's coverage seems to be more extensive than Sky's but also more relaxed. 

 

Sad that all the on location venues have BBC or Sky playing in the background and not CNN.

Wow CNN starting to seem understaffed: the anchors are scrambling around for notes and results, Amanpour has to unexpectedly throw to a result and then when she has to analyse, says she couldnt hear it at all leading to a minute of on airspeculation even though viewers knew what had happened
