The people want a vote but they won't get one until we get politicians in power who are really committed to giving the people their voice whilst (most importantly) they are in power and then follow the wishes of the people through, whichever way the ballot goes.
A Populus poll run for the Saga group reveals that the over 50’s, the group most likely to vote, are committed to the idea of having a say on our membership of the European Union, with large majorities in favour of a vote in every region of the country.Â On average 73% want a vote, with 76%Â in East Anglia and 64% of Scots.Â When it comes to voting to leave 45% say out now and only 33% committed to remainingÂ part of the EU.
Nigel Farage the UKIP leader said “In a poll of over 11,000 people the message is clear, people want their say. They don’t want to wait for four years they want it now. A full 65% want to see the vote before the next general election.
“When they have their say it is also pretty clear that the majority of those who have made up their minds also want out.
“Wherever you go in the country, those with greater experience of the world look at the European Union and say, thank you but no thank you. What is also clear is that the greater the experience, the greater the desire for Britain to stand up for itself and regain its independence. You have to remember that this is the generation that was lied to, and the generation that remembers how good it feels to be free”.
