Polling company Angus Reid have published interesting results about British attitudes to the European Union here. Only 27% of Brits would vote to stay in the European Union, with 48% voting to leave.
If I were a British pro-European, I’d actually take comfort in those figures. Despite the massive anti-EU bias in the British media, and the shocking lack of knowledge amongst British citizens about the EU, it can still get one in four votes, and the Better Off Out crowd can’t get a majority?
As has been the experience of EU votes in Ireland, the more people found out about about the EU, the more they like it, a phenomenon I believe would occur in a referendum campaign in Britain. Maybe pro-Europeans should not fear a referendum so much.
