'88% back EU treaty referendum bid'


Recommended Posts

Campaigners for a referendum on the European Union's controversial Lisbon Treaty claim they have overwhelming public support.


The I Want A Referendum Campaign said that in unofficial mini-referendums which it ran in 10 parliamentary constituencies, 88% voted in favour of a full-blown referendum on the treaty.


The campaign said that 152,520 people voted in the polls, of whom 133,251 voted for a referendum. The announcement of the results came as MPs prepare to vote on Wednesday on whether to hold a referendum for real.


In addition to the main question, voters were also asked if the UK should approve the EU's Lisbon Treaty. Of those who voted, 89% voted against and 8% voted in favour, with 3% not answering.
