Thanks to everyone who took part in last week’s poll on whether to stay in or leave the EU.
208 people took part, out of 492 who read the post – so 42% of readers decided to vote.
Hopefully the actual referendum will have a slightly higher turnout. Bizarrely though, 42% was the turnout in the last referendum that took place in the UK (as opposed to Scotland) in 2011, the bungled vote on changes to the way we vote for members of parliament. Only 36% of the electorate voted in the 2014 elections for Members of the European Parliament.
The readership here is not representative of the voting electorate – well I say that, I have no direct evidence that it is true, but I imagine it is.
Anyway 75% of you voted to stay in the EU, while 19% voted to leave, with 5% still undecided.
I suspect the real poll will be a lot closer than that.
