European Union, The result
Since November 2014, we have polled London City visitors 3 times, to see how they felt about Britain in the European Union and if they wanted to be In or Out of the EU.
November 2014 Out: 60% In: 40%
February 2016 Out: 46% In: 54%
We polled you again this week, directly after the Eurovision song contest thrashing to see if you had changed your minds. More than ever, you want Britain to remain a part of Europe.
May 2016 Out: 38% In: 62%
It is worth remembering our poll is only of a hundred-fifty people each time, and those outside of the UK are also voting. It does however still demonstrate that those who visit London City are keen for the UK to remain part of the European Union.
It costs the UK £16 Billion a year to be part of the EU (US $23 Bln).
Whether or not these votes indicate that Brits think the EU is good value at £55m a day, or if it is those from other countries wanting us to stay, remains to be seen.
The UK gets to vote in an In/Out referendum on 23rd June.

Whatever happens, remember to vote.
This is not like an election where we get to change our minds every five years. This is one vote, one time and we will never be asked this question again.... unless we vote 'Out' (and if that happens, expect a second referendum). Should we vote 'In', we are in forever. Choose wisely.
