London City Votes



We polled visitors again this week about the American Presidential Election.  These are the results from the three polls from March, June and November.

If this is at all reflective of how America votes, this could be one of the closest elections of all time with the Donald gaining significant ground on Clinton who has always been in the lead.

March
Trump 43.0%   Clinton 57.0%

June
Trump 41.6%   Clinton 58.4%

November
Trump 49.3%  Clinton 50.7%



That said.. remember when we polled you about In/Out of Europe just ahead of the big vote and only 38% thought we should leave.  On the day itself 52% voted to Leave!

Brexit



A very happy Friday to you all.   For the first time all month in RL London, the sun is shining, it is a scorcher of a day and a new dawn for Britain has just begun.

If you fancy popping by London City today, predictably, people are gathering to discuss what happens next...   Join us.

European Union Referendum Day in UK




Whether you choose to leave, or remain; today is the day you cast your vote.   Unlike General Elections where you can boot out the offending party in favour of a different one, this is a once in a lifetime vote as to whether or not Britain should leave the EU or remain in it.  We will not be asked again, so choose wisely!

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.

For more information on remaining in the EU see: http://www.strongerin.co.uk/
For more information on leaving the EU see: http://www.voteleavetakecontrol.org/

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.

Britain in the European Union



Sterling is doing well. In fact the British economy has grown much faster than other countries in the European Union, that tomorrow on 1st December we are due to pay our punishment fine of £1.7 billion to bail out the Euro again.

Hot on the heels of Britain being asked to pay the EU an additional £960 million on top of the £1.7 billion, we did a just for fun flash poll which asked our visitors:
Should Britain remain the European Union? Yes/No

Our board registered the first 100 votes, so the results are both people and a percentage.   It is worth noting that anyone could vote no matter which country they are in, so those benefiting from the fines levied on our growth may well have voted for Britain to stay in Europe, lest the gravy train runs out.


60% of people voted for Britain to leave the European Union, whilst 40% voted for it to stay.

Of course, if Britain ultimately decides to leave the union, various trade embargoes could come into effect initially, so start clearing some space in your garden so you can grow potatoes and cabbages and dig for victory once again.

Thank you for taking part in the poll.
