New Brexit polls suggest shift in favour of leaving the EU

606x341_334405.jpg

LONDON: -- Two new polls show that Britons may vote in favour of leaving the European Union in the countries fast approaching referendum.

Both an online and a telephone survey conducted by polling company ICM at the request of the Guardian newspaper show a small lead for the leave vote.

The polls, conducted on Tuesday, are the first to show a shift in opinion towards leaving the EU, with an overall majority of 52 per cent, although a YouGov poll on Wednesday showed both sides level on 41 per cent, unchanged from its previous survey.

ICM’s director, Martin Boon, told the Guardian that the poll “unhinges a few accepted unorthodoxies”.

“It is only one poll but, in a rather unexpected reverse of polling assumptions so far, both our phone poll and our online poll are consistent on both vote intentions and on the EU referendum,” he continued.

The poll is a thorn in the side of the remain group, who are under mounting pressure after the Brexit campaign dictated its policy on immigration, a key issue in the upcoming vote.

The points based system that the group propose would be not unlike that implemented in Australia, and would limit the number of people who can enter the UK should the country vote to leave the EU.

Senior members of the “Out” campaign said that by the 2020 General Election, citizens coming from the EU would be treated like any other, and would be admitted based on their suitability for jobs.

In a joint statement, Justice Secretary Michael Gove, former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Employment Minister Priti Patel wrote: “We will end our support for the EU’s disastrous policies that have encouraged the people smugglers.”

“We will welcome new citizens who wish to contribute to our society, as so many immigrants have done. And we will be able to remove those who abuse our hospitality.”

In response the remain faction said that any move to take Britain out of the EU single market would damage the economy, and its leader, Prime Minister David Cameron has come under fire for failing to deliver a policy on immigration.

In the 24 hours since the polls were released, 80,000 more people registered to vote, and the number of registered voters continues to rise day by day.

The vote will be held on 23 June, a date that has been contested due to its clashes with university exams and popular events such as Glastonbury festival.

The odds have shortened, but you can still get 11/4 against a Leave vote.

The 'purdah' period has begun, which means an end to the official wailing about the dangers of Brexit, and leaves the public three weeks to figure things out on their own.

The problem with these polls is that the outcome is so determined by the orientation of the questions asked.....

Are you in favour of Britain determining its own future and position in the world without interference from foreign governments or organisations. answer is invariably yes

Are you in favour of reducing the amount of monies sent to the EU each year and instead focusing these funds on education and health here in Britain.. answer is invariable yes....

Are you in favour off having Britain creating more jobs and exporting more goods and services by expanding its trade alliances beyond that of embattled Europe... answer is always yes

Lastly based on the previous questions are you then in favour of seeing Britain exit the EU .....answer is yes....

you can also get the opposite reaction by turning they questions around... the outcome is generally always predicated by the orientation of the questions

This is following the pattern of the Scottish referendum. The Remain campaign's confidence is shaken so expect an increase in publicity. Gordon Brown to the rescue?

Hopefully the final outcome will be the same.

Let's hope so, the EU has way too much to say about how the British Government should run their country, there will be many business people who have made substantial investments in the EU and they are the ones trying to convince everyone to stay; however for the majority of the population getting out of this cesspit is the correct way to go. Get our country & borders back from people who don't give a hoot about the UK.

I'm not surprised, what with all the tripe the smarmy, unpatriotic Remain party are dishing out... appearing to make the Leaves seem confused and unworthy. Flip-flop Cameron should move on if the Leaves prevail.

I don't really have a dog in this fight, I have never been an anglophile, and, in general, I am not opposed to people leaving their homeland to live and work in another country - I've done it several times. However, what I see here is about one-third of the population of North Africa and the ME trying to cross the Mediterranean and invade Europe. They bring with them an economy-burdening poverty and a hostile culture that dilutes the indigenous culture to the point that, were it not recorded in literature and academia, it would no longer be recognizable. European families, in general, have taken responsible steps to voluntarily limit population increases through reproduction. Third world countries from Africa and Asia continue to produce large families to increase the number of workers in their units and to guarantee security for the elderly. That, coupled with the technology compassionately offered from the west, has increased the survival rate of their citizenry but it has not increased the economic opportunities to enjoy the out-of-reach living standards in Europe as witnessed by them in the media.

Compassion is an admirable trait, especially when exercised by nations with the support of their people. But in the modern world it is rapidly becoming a means of enabling that encourages people to leave their countries instead of struggling to fix them. Unless there is a radical change in the EU policy vis-a-vis immigration, continued membership in that organization will result in the accelerated dismantling of the UK.

The British Empire is long gone. It is time for the British people to expiate itself of the guilt for sins it committed during that era and function again as a cohesive, focused unit the way it did during its heroic days of the early 1940s. That cannot happen if it continues to carry the burdens imposed by continued membership in EU.

My view of the EU is it is a form of governmental welfare feeding off the Countries who could take care of themselves and spending the money on Countries who have never taken care of themselves !!

It also allows people for other Countries to come in and take jobs from the host Country. Some can not even speak the language of the Country they are working in.

Whichever way the vote goes doesn't really matter.....this is all balancing the karma these countries created for the last hundreds of years. Living off the back of the indigenous poor in countries as varied as India, or China...forcing them to take opium to pay for goods, and many countries in Africa. At some point the piper has to be paid, and all this EU stuff is part of the balancing. Centuries of dominating others by countries like the U.K., Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, and on and on. And now the refugees and poor emigrants are balancing the scales. Watch and be entertained.

The hope now is that Scotland will stay in The UK after Breexit.The UK without Scotland will not have an easy go of it. And now with the election of a Muslim Mayor in London they will have a lot or Islamic trouble coming that they would need Scotland's influence on.The future for The UK is not just about money as it is social sustainability.At least out of the EU they will be able to better control their immigration problems (even though so far they have shown very little effort to control).

I'm having problems understanding the Scottish Nationalists, they want another referendum so they can leave the UK and be governed by Brussels instead?
