OUR SURVEY SAYS: UK DEMANDS REFERENDUM ON EUROPE!
MOST adults say they would welcome a referendum on whether or not the UK should be in or out of Europe, according to a poll conducted by YouGov. The Poll also shows the distrust the electorate have for politician’s when it comes to acting in the UK’s best interests in the European Union.
71% of those polled by YouGov expressed a view that they have not much or no trust at all.
The survey, commissioned by Nikki Sinclaire MEP/Campaign for a Referendum, outlines a groundswell of opinion over the country’s future in the EU.
The poll discovered that a massive 56% of adults surveyed said they would welcome a referendum, whereas a mere 28% said they would not call for such a move.
The new figure shows that there are now double the amount of people who want a referendum compared to those who do not.
The YouGov poll shows that 65% of those who intend to vote Conservative thinks there should be a referendum.
The news comes just days ahead of the delivery of a petition to Prime Minister David Cameron by West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire.
It contains the signatures of more than 100,000 people demanding a referendum on Europe. Almost a year ago the Campaign for a Referendum collected 120,000 names, sparking a near-rebellion as 79 Conservative MPs turned against party whips.
Nikki Sinclaire said, “The figures speak for themselves. People across the nation are calling for a referendum. This is the most important issue this country faces –isn’t it about time that we let the people decide?”
Joining Nikki Sinclaire at Downing Street this week will be George Hargreaves, who was a prominent member of Jimmy Goldsmiths Referendum Party, and former Apprentice star and businesswoman Katie Hopkins.
Katie Hopkins said “Six out of ten people want a referendum, why are our elected politicians not taking notice?”
