And the oldies seemingly less concerned about “unconditional BREXIT”
As we move towards the formal start of the UK’s extraction process there’s going to be a lot of polling like this latest from ICM on voters view the current options.
This is a very hard thing to poll on because of the tight-lipped approach by Theresa May who won’t reveal anything except to bosses of big Japanese car manufacturers who employ a lot of people here. Her refusal “to give running commentary” is getting a bit tired and she’s fortunate that the official opposition leader, Mr Corbyn, is so piss-poor. Facing sharper questioning her position would be harder to maintain.
To what extent is Britain ready to undermine its economy in order to curb immigration? The polling we see is very mixed and determined to an extent by how the question is put.
This latest ICM polling came out at the weekend but I refrained from writing about it here until I saw the dataset. It really is important to look at the actual question wording and that’s only just become available.
The data shows a huge age split with younger voters far less incline to accept unconditional BREXIT.
