Public split on EU reform treaty

by Stephen Tall on September 24, 2007

Well, here’s a turn-up for the books. According to an Ipsos-Mori poll in today’s Sun, the country is split about whether they would vote to back or reject the EU reform treaty:

The result of a referendum would be a nail-biter with 46 per cent saying they would reject the Treaty and 44 per cent backing it.

The poll also asked how people would vote if there were a referendum on whether Britain should stay in the EU. It showed 56 per cent wanting to stay in and 44 per cent wanting to get out.

Given the fevered anti-EU press the treaty has received, I’d have expected the public mood at this stage to be much more agin than this poll suggests.
