NEARLY half of British voters want the country to quit the European Union, a shock opinion poll revealed last night. A YouGov survey found that 47 per cent of adults would vote in favour of the UK withdrawing from the EU if a referendum on the issue were held. Only a third of those quizzed for the poll said they would vote for Britain to remain within the 27-nation group.
Last night, Eurosceptics seized on the poll as evidence of growing disenchantment with Britain’s EU membership. Paul Nuttall, chairman of the UK Independence Party, said: “These poll results just tell us what anybody with eyes to see or ears to hear has known for ages, the people want out of the EU. Britain needs a referendum on continued EU membership, not some makeweight promise from the Government. The fact that in every part of the country there is a majority for leaving says it all.”
The YouGov poll showed that a majority of voters aged over 40 want Britain to quit the EU.
- 52% of voters aged between 40 and 59 backed withdrawal, and among the over-60s the figure rose to 57%.
- 63% of Tory voters wanted Britain to quit the EU, with 37% of Labour voters in favour of the move.
- 33% of the Lib Dem supporters quizzed said they would vote against EU membership in a referendum.
The poll result was published last night as ministers released details of a proposed new “referendum lock” law which is designed to stop any further power being handed over to Brussels. The aim is to prevent a repeat of the Lisbon Treaty fiasco which saw Gordon Brown give the EU sweeping powers to meddle in UK affairs but last night Euro-sceptics critics were quick to brand the measure “worthless”. Senior Tory backbencher Douglas Carswell said: “This ‘lock’ is worthless and ministers must know it, under the Lisbon Treaty the EU doesn’t need any more treaties to give itself more powers.”
A "shock opinion poll", they say....... what fucking planet are they on?!!!!
People all over Europe want out of the EUSSR and the only ones who refuse to see that are fucking politicians - there are none so blind as those who will not see, and these self-serving cunts are blind a bats! According to this poll a full two thirds of us want out of this New World Order experimental club for the ruling elite and these fuckers know that very well - that's why we have not been given our referendum and the "referendum lock" that they are trying to buy us off with now is pure fucking bollocks, piss and wind! Douglas Carswell has said what we already know that the so-called "lock" is worthless as the Lisbon Treaty is self-amending and that ministers know it.
Well here's a bit of news for those ministers - we know it too, you fucking cunts, even though you seem to think we are all thick and easily hoodwinked!
Fuck the fucking fuck off and give us our referendum, you useless twats!
