why should we?

There is no science, even pseudoscience in these things, they are all opinions and who knows who they are contacting? They don't.....

So, no to assume makes an ASS out of U and ME.....

I would totally ignore such things - they have absolutely NO basis of accuracy.......
Sorry Dave, it's all changed since last year. The polling organisations carried out an in depth review of why they got it wrong and, as you are probably aware, they concluded that they hadn't been asking enough of the right sort of people what their voting intentions were.

I think we can therefore now assume that they've got it right - cant't we?!

I couldn't agree more, the polls were a joke running upto the general election.


I said then in the run up on here that the Tories would win and I will say here that we will remain in the EU.


And desperately hope I am wrong.


Most people I have spoken to want to remain in, a mixture of not having enough information, don't know so I'll vote to remain as we are, its ok as it is so I'll vote to stay in.

peribro My youngest two who are at university will be home by 23rd June and I was debating whether to include them on the electoral roll here as they are in the Remain camp! Anyway it's academic as they seem to spend most of their days in bed so probably won't get up before polling closes - I'll do the right thing therefore and register them!

barryd Time for David Cameron to get round the Universities and offer free beer at the polling stations or produce an iPhone vote app! Actually its about time we could vote online. All these pieces of paper in a ballot box is a bit 1970's!

Of course the article could be an April Fools joke!!
With quotes like that, of course it is.

The Queen OWNS Balmoral, not the state, so they didn't nearly lose it at all
