Is the February deal Cameron made with the EU already voided by the EU Referendum negative Vote? And if so, how did they implement such an mechanism in the contracts?

    This needs more context. What is the February deal? – gerrit Jun 28 '16 at 16:07
  • Yes. EU officials stated this themselves. – bon Jun 28 '16 at 19:03
  • I don't see how, unless the February deal specifically states that it is null and void if a non-binding referendum declare's the UK populace's desire to leave the EU. – Robert Harvey Jun 28 '16 at 21:19
  • Exactly, this sounds weird. How could it be? – Roland Kofler Jun 29 '16 at 1:11

It is understood that, should the result of the referendum in the United Kingdom be for it to leave the European Union, the set of arrangements referred to in paragraph 2 above will cease to exist.

Yes. Cameron stated so himself on 2016-06-27:

The deal we negotiated at the European Council in February will now be discarded and a new negotiation to leave the EU will begin under a new Prime Minister.

AFAIK the deal was bound to a successful referendum.

  • Yes but I really want to know how you can possibly bind this to a referendum? – Roland Kofler Jun 29 '16 at 1:13

    @RolandKofler: Supposedly the referendum is interpreted as rejecting the negotiated deal. – hkBst Jun 30 '16 at 12:30
