The campaign for UK citizens to leave EU is ahead in the fifth opinion poll that was published over the last 24 hours.
The online survey of 2,497 adults carried out by TNS June 7-13 found 47 percent backing “Leave” and 40 percent for “Remain.” It comes after four phone and online surveys released Monday by ICM, YouGov Plc and ORB showed leads of between 1 point and 7 points.
The repeated warnings of economic risks if Britain is to leave the European Union on the referendum that is now only week away (scheduled for 23 of June) has so far failed to raise awareness among voters. In an even more devastating blow to the prime minister David Cameron – who is leading the Stay Campaign, came Britains biggest selling newspaper ,,The Sun,, in favor of Leaving EU.
“I’m sensing real momentum for ‘Leave’ around the country,” U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said on Twitter. “We can win this and get our country back!”
“Turning our back on Europe would wreck the British economy, putting millions of hardworking British people’s financial stability at risk,” Streeting said in a statement. “The ‘Leave’ campaign can’t dismiss the evidence.”
Sterling declined against all but one of its 16 major counterparts, dropping 1.1 percent to $1.4113 as of 4:38 p.m. in London, after touching $1.4091, the lowest since April 14.
Brexit is not only dangerous for the British economy. If it is to happen, it will take several years for Britain to fully exit EU, but the spillover effect that such a vote might have on other member-countries might be even more devastating.
So far, there are plenty of votes up for grabs. The referendum is close. Who will get these ,,undecided,, we are about to see.
