That anti-EU vote, again…

Following on from the previous post, asking where the anti-EU vote the media keeps talking about is, ComRes has published the findings of a poll of UKIP voters at the European Elections asking them to prioritise the issues that determined why they voted for the party.

The details, published on Political Betting, show that leaving the EU trailing a long way behind controlling immigration in the priorities of those who voted UKIP.

So even though this a ComRes poll, we are once again left to ask where this huge anti-EU vote – which the legacy parties and media are determined to use as an explanation for the UKIP vote and justification for the fantasy EU reform agenda – is.

In years gone by UKIP members would have ranked leaving the EU as their number one issue by a very long way.  But that is clearly no longer the case.  Immigration has become the big issue, despite UKIP having no understanding of the global dimensions of immigration rules and no policy to address them, and it is that subject which has seen support for the party increase.  The anti-EU cause is being diluted and eroded.

This is leading to the other parties and media applying an outdated and inaccurate interpretation that they wish the metrics would underpin, rather than an interpretation of what the metrics actually show.

    Perhaps they feel this is the one they can sell at the moment .It worked

    They can push OUT as well but basing a movement on the method of leaving is a non starter .Its not sellable to the great unwashed who just want OUT .They will leave the method to those organising it.

    Perhaps we can have a poll to see

    Cheers

    Not so for me, my family and friends. As a country, we cannot control immigration without leaving the EU. It is implicit in (and a prerequisite of) dealing with the issue. It always was.

    Robert, I suggest you have a read of the EU Referendum site with regard to immigration and leaving the EU. You’ve bought the UKIP line. The reality of immigration and how it can be dealt with is very different to that which Farage would have people believe.
