The numbers don't lie when it comes to the EU.

Jon Gaunt's re-branded UK Out of the EU has commissioned a YouGov poll that David Cameron and many senior Tories won't be thanking him for publishing this week.
The numbers are yet another hammer blow to the pro-EU, anti-referendum Westminster cartel that Cameron leads along with Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband. Key figures include:

  • 74% of Tory voters want an EU membership referendum. 
  • 68% of Tory voters would back EU withdrawal in a referendum.
  • 62% of the general public support an EU referendum.
  • 51% of all voters would back EU withdrawal.
  • 65% of British voters oppose any participation in Eurozone bailouts.
The numbers do not lie. The momentum is building and public opinion is reaching fever pitch on the issue of an EU referendum.

The fact that the British public are now clearly so anti-EU is a double-edged sword however. It is likely to scare Cameron, Clegg and Miliband to death. I suspect we would have far greater chance of being granted a referendum if the figures did not suggest such a cutting defeat for the pro-EU camp.

One thing in my mind is for certain: the odds for the pro-EU brigade on winning a referendum are only going to get longer. The longer the farce of no EU referendum for the British people goes on, the more Eurosceptic the public will become. The EU's lethal combination of swallowing billions of pounds of British taxpayers money and imposing obscene and undemocratic laws will guarantee its own increasing unpopularity.

I'm suprised only 51% favour withdrawal. When you take into account all the pro EU propoganda if/when a referendum does happen I'm not so confident of victory. I just hope the whole thing collapses and dies asap!
