Majority of Britons want to leave the EU soon after Paris attacks: opinion poll

LONDON A lot more than half of Britons now want to leave the European Union, according to an opinion poll carried out right after the Paris attacks for the Independent newspaper published.

The ORB survey of 2,000 folks showed 52 percent of British voters wanted to leave even though 48 % wanted to keep. In comparable polls in June, July and September, a majority had wanted to stay in the EU.

Earlier this month, British Prime Minister David Cameron launched his attempt to reform the 28-member bloc ahead of a referendum on no matter whether Britain should stay an EU member, a vote which he has promised will take place by the end of 2017.

A British divorce would shake the bloc to its core, ripping away its second largest economy and a single of its prime two military powers. Pro-Europeans warn an exit from the EU would hurt Britain’s economy and could trigger the break-up of the United Kingdom by prompting yet another Scottish independence vote.

Other polls have shown British support for staying in the European Union fell this year as an influx of migrants into Europe raised concerns about membership.
