Poll: Strong UK Support For Early EU Vote

Via Sky News:

There is strong UK public support for an early referendum on Europe, according to a new poll.

The survey for the Mail on Sunday found more than half of voters want a referendum on the UK's membership before the next election.

While nearly two-thirds support a vote in the Commons on the issue as early as next month, almost half said they would vote to quit the EU if a poll went ahead in 2014.

Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged to hold a referendum by 2017.

Meanwhile, a European Union survey has found there are more than 600,000 unemployed migrants from the EU living in the UK.

The report - commissioned by the Brussels commissioner for employment and social inclusion, Laszlo Andor - found there were 611,779 "non-active" EU migrants in the UK last year compared with 431,687 in 2006 - a 42% increase.

While between 2005 and 2006 the growth of non-active EU migrants in the UK stagnated, since 2006 it has been steadily rising, the report said.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that the figures meant the annual cost to the National Health Service amounted to £1.5bn.

Believe it when I see it. We have been promised a referendum on this since 1990. Each time it gets delayed for various reasons.
