Since US President Barack Obama claimed the UK would be at the "back of the queue" should the country leave the European Union, the argument over the global impact of a Brexit has raged on. Britons take to the polls on 23 June to vote on their membership, knowing that a decision to Leave would change the political make-up of the continent significantly.

President Obama's controversial comments started a larger debate over what Britain's global role could be in the case of a Brexit, with high-profile politicians such as US presidential front-runner Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau all having their say.

The Remain argument over foreign relations is that inside the EU, Britain remains an influential member of a powerful bloc. Leaving the union would mean renegotiating trade deals with a large number of countries, as well as having to work out where the UK now stands in the reshuffled global arena.

However, Leave campaigners see these changes as positives. They argue that Britain is too powerful a country with too strong an economy to simply be relegated to the back of the queue, meaning the UK would be in a good position in these mass renegotiations. Campaigners also argue that this could lead to greater trade partnerships with Commonwealth nations, as well as new deals with Canada and Australia.
