Good news from the Daily Mail – that makes a pleasant change, doesn’t it?
The Mail is reporting findings from an Ipsos MORI poll that shows 55 per cent of voters want to stay in the European Union, despite the ever-more desperate claims of Brexit campaigners like Boris Johnson and Michael Gove.
The poll has also shown that voters have seen through David Cameron’s silly claims about Brexit increasing the possibility of war on the continent and don’t believe them either.
This Writer would suggest that the findings indicate that voters are taking a pragmatic approach. They’re not interested in the scaremongering predictions – often with no basis in reality – that have been dubbed ‘Project Fear’ by detractors on both sides.
They want facts.
It is deeply unfortunate for the Conservative Party that the high-profile examples of evidenceless scaremongering have been perpetrated by its high-profile members.
What does that say about the Tories?
The campaign to keep Britain in the EU raced into an 18-point lead today, according to a new poll.
It is the biggest lead recorded in the EU referendum campaign so far, but the same poll found that the public don’t believe David Cameron’s claims that a Brexit vote in June’s EU referendum would bring war and genocide back to Europe.
A majority of 58 per cent of voters believe leaving the EU would make ‘no difference’ to peace and security on the continent, according to an Ipsos MORI poll carried out over the weekend.
