Most voters want Britain to leave EU: Support for PULLING OUT at highest level for 30 years

Editor’s Note: Of course, what they are not telling us is that the master plan is to fold Britain into a new EU ‘super state’, where Britain will become part of a ‘Region’ within the new EU. And you will not be able to vote on that one! All part of their brave new world order. It matters not who is in power – Labour enabled  it and the Conservatives will progress the same agenda. That’s how it works.

Support for Britain pulling out of the European Union is at its highest level for 30 years, a Mail on Sunday poll has found.

If a referendum on leaving the EU was held tomorrow,  51 per cent say they would vote to leave, while just 34 per cent would opt to stay.

It means support for a pullout is at its most buoyant since the early Eighties, during Margaret Thatcher’s first term in Government, when nearly two thirds of voters wanted to leave the Common Market.

The Survation poll findings have emerged as David Cameron prepares to announce that he is in favour of a referendum on membership – and the EU plans to mount a multi-million pound pro-Brussels propaganda offensive to counter hardening Eurosceptic sentiment.

On Tuesday, MEPs will vote in the European Parliament for a campaign to designate 2013 ‘Year of European Citizens’, backed by a 1.75 million euros marketing budget to ‘raise awareness’ of the benefits of EU membership.

The planned publicity blitz was last night described by critics as a softening-up exercise before the expected referendum campaign.

Support for the ‘out’ campaign has jumped over the past year, from an average of 41 per cent, as the damaging effects of the eurozone economic crisis have strengthened the hand  of Brussels’ opponents.

Downing Street sources indicated last week that the next Conservative manifesto will contain a pledge to negotiate a clawback of powers from the EU, followed by a public vote on the result. It follows last week’s revelation that Education Secretary Michael Gove wants the UK to pull out of the EU unless we can renegotiate the relationship – a significant development given Mr Gove’s political and personal links to the Prime Minister.

Tim Aker, from the anti-EU group Get Britain Out, said: ‘The EU should not be using our hard-earned cash to promote the so-called benefits of EU membership,’ he said. ‘The EU should stand back and let the British people decide’.

Nigel Farage, the leader  of UKIP, said: ‘Spending taxpayers’ money on self-promotion is appalling and  yet another reason why  we need a referendum  on our membership’.
