David Cameron has alleged voters not to “sit on the sidelines” and to back his call for a vote to stay in the EU.
The PM claimed “round out untruths” were coming from the Leave side and said he was “not at all” perturbed about losing the 23 June referendum.
At a hastily-arranged press meeting, he urged young people to register to vote before midnight’s deadline.
Back up Leave said the PM was in a “blind nic” and “too chicken” to debate against them head-to-head.

Mr Cameron said he had decided to draft b call the press conference after watching the news on Monday night, reply the contrast between the two sides in the debate “came over me”.
Without designation Justice Secretary Michael Gove – who said on Friday the British people had “had enough of experts” sign against Brexit – he said the comment showed “complacency and nonchalance”.
‘Jack’ cam ign
The PM said the Remain cam ign was backed by “credible independent pundits”, hailing warnings against an EU exit from Ja nese multinational Hitachi and the chairwoman of the US Federal Reservoir.
The PM launched a fierce attack on Vote Leave, which is spearheaded by elder Conservatives including some of his cabinet colleagues, accusing them of “considerable complete untruths to the British people” including claiming the UK’s rebate was at imperil and that it would be liable to contribute to future EU bailouts.
He said the voter registration deadline unmistakeable a “vital moment” in the cam ign, saying the outcome would “alter the fate of our country forever”, adding: “So I say to everyone – especially young people in our rural area who this will affect most of all – don’t sit it out on the sidelines.
“Don’t let someone else demonstrate this decision for you.”
Vote Leave responded by saying the PM was nicking to his “flagging” cam ign, dismissing his reassurances on bailouts and the rebate and claiming his renegotiation was a “dereliction”.
UKIP MP Douglas Carswell said: “The In cam ign is in a blind nic. David Cameron’s renegotiation was a folding -no-one believes he got a deal worth the per it was written on.
“Now people are renouncing his cam ign of fear. The prime minister says we need a proper weigh about the facts but he is too chicken to take on anyone from the Vote Lose cam ign head-to-head.”
The PM’s press conference comes after Federal Defer chairwoman Janet Yellen said a UK vote to leave the EU could eat “significant economic repercussions” for the US and that Brexit was one factor that the US chief bank would consider when deciding whether to raise rtisan rates.
In a speech on Monday, Ms Yellen stressed that investors’ “hankering for risk” could change quickly and that a UK exit from the EU last wishes a be likely to affect market sentiment.
Her remarks echo comments from other economists close to the im ct of a Brexit on the US economy.
Meanwhile, writing in the Mirror, Hitachi’s chairman signified the “cold economic reality” was that Brexit would lead to uncertainty and adventitious costs for business.
Hiroaki Nakanishi suggested Ja n had invested heavily in the UK on the principle that its firms were “treated as European”.
Hitachi is the latest peculiar investor in the UK to warn of the consequences of a vote to leave in the referendum on 23 June. In week US investment bank JP Morgan Chase said it could cut up to 4,000 jobs in the affair of an EU exit.
Mr Nakanishi said his firm, whose European headquarters is found in Berkshire, had invested £1bn in the UK energy and rail sectors in recent years. He pronounced it was in the process of recruiting 730 new workers to build the next generation of high-speed inter-city sequences.
But if the UK was to leave the EU, he said the future investment case would look “altogether different”.
The UK was the “best base” to access the EU’s internal market of 500 million fellows and the firm’s ca city to win more business and deliver orders could be derailed by common outside it.
“In the 80s Nissan and Toyota came to the UK on the basis that if they extruded here and employed a British workforce they would be treated as European com nies,” he stipulate.
“This was only possible because Britain was inside the EU; and so the UK car industry was refreshed and became an exporter again. From Ja n, this incredible prosperity story looks like a huge gain from the UK’s membership of the EU.”
“We worry because those advocating Brexit rtake of no answer to how the UK could negotiate cost-free access to this huge vend from a position outside it.
“It would take a long time and denouement in uncertain market conditions; during this renegotiation period, investors commitment probably be waiting to see the outcomes, hold back on investment, and jobs leave be lost. This is the cold economic reality of Brexit.”
On a visit to London termination month, Ja nese prime minister Shinzo Abe warned that say goodbye the EU would make the UK less attractive to Ja nese investors.
Justice Secretary Michael Gove claimed many organisations arguing for Remain had previously made similar themes in favour of joining the euro.
“They were wrong then, they are mistaken now,” he said.
Mr Gove said people’s economic welfare would be eminent if the UK “takes back control” and is free to form trade deals with boondocks like the USA, Canada, India and Ja n.
