- 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.
