Pro Remain group say non voters would be 'pivotal' in second EU referendum

Leamington Editorial 12th Apr, 2018   0

NON voters would be ‘pivotal’ if a second EU vote was held say a local pro Remain group.

Warwick District for Europe asked some 130 residents how they would vote in a second EU referendum.

The group says the most interesting find of their results was the discovery of how many previous non voters would now be swayed to back remain.

More than 80 per cent of the non voters asked said they would want to remain in the EU, with nearly eight per cent saying they would vote leave and the rest still undecided.




A spokesman for the campaign group said the result showed if a second referendum were to take place, previous non voters would ensure the result would be England staying in the European Union.

He said: “The really interesting statistics related to non voters in the referendum and how they would vote now.


“This local result is in line with recent results nationally such that, if it were translated to actual voting, the voting on Brexit would be very different, with the Remain vote significantly exceeding the Leave vote.”

Britain is due to withdraw from the EU next March after a referendum which saw nearly 52 per cent vote to leave.
