New Daily Mail poll shows huge surge in support for Britain’s membership in the EU
A new Daily Mail poll shows a huge surge in support for Britain to stay in the EU.
More Britons now support the country’s membership than those who want to leave.
Fifty-four percent of respondents in the poll - carried out by polling firm ComRes for the Daily Mail - said they would vote to remain in the EU if a referendum was held now.
Thirty-six per cent said they would vote to leave while ten per cent were undecided, a smaller share than in previous polls.
**Tony Blair also warned this week that Britain quitting the EU would also end in Scotland leaving the United Kingdom.
The former Labour prime minister admitted he is ‘very worried’ about the result and consequences of the upcoming results. **
Britain’s future membership will be determined by tens of millions of voters filling in one box with a simple black cross.
They will be asked ‘Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union’.
Voters will choose between answers reading ‘Remain a member of the European Union’ or ‘Leave the European Union’.
The wording of the question was a subject of hot debate and the Government was forced to amend it while the legislation for the referendum was going through Parliament.
The proposed form is shown in draft regulations laid before Parliament on the conduct of the national poll, one part of the legislation which must be approved at least ten weeks before the UK is asked to decide whether to remain in the EU.
