Majority of British voters back leaving the EU, new poll shows

51 per cent would vote to quit the EU against 49 per cent who would vote to remain

Cameron aims for Britain to stay in a reformed EU

A majority of British voters in a new poll for the first time backed leaving the European Union, the Independent reported. The newspaper cited the Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday that found if a referendum were held tomorrow 51 per cent would vote to quit the EU against 49 per cent who would vote to remain. Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron wants to reform the UK's membership of the EU before holding an in/out referendum at the end of 2017 the latest. The cep believes, though, that it is unlikely that Cameron will be able to push through major changes in the talks with his EU peers.
