EU Referendum: Poll shows Britain split 50/50 – but higher turnout among older voters could tip country into Brexit | UK Politics | News | The Independent

According to a new opinion poll, The Independent reports the British public is split 50/50 on whether to leave the EU but a higher turnout among the Outers could tip the balance in favour of Brexit. Given a straight choice, 50 per cent of people said Britain should leave and 50 per cent that it should remain. But when the findings were weighted to take account of people’s likelihood to vote, the result changed to 51 per cent for Leave and 49 per cent for Remain.

There a need for the media to impress upon younger voters that their views are really important.

  1. Another piece of non news from the Independent via Dr Alf about Brexit and Remain.

    We have known for some time that the opinion polls show a fairly even split in public opinion and that the Referendum was deliberately timed to coincide with the summer holidays so as to maximise the chances of a vote for Remain. The plan now is to apply a technique developed by Sir John Rawlings Reece the former head of psychological warfare of the British Army who worked for the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations and trained Dr Henry Kissinger.

    The technique is called “Creating long range penetration strain” and its purpose is to overwhelm people with arguments,figures and conflicting positions so that they cannot make up their minds and are reduced to paralysis and inaction and a desire for the safety of that which they are most familiar.

    It may or may not work so the result thus far is too close to call.
