I just read through a poll on Britain's feelings towards the EU and was really surprised by the results. There are many Britons who are unhappy with
the EU and think it has not benefitted them.
When asked the if Britain has benefited from being a member of the European Union 35% feel membership has been a benefit and 45% think it's harmed
When asked, 'Should Britain seek to have a stronger relationship with the European Union or with the United States?,' they did pick Europe over the
US but there still seems to be some discontent.
When asked about the 10 new members of the EU, 31% said it was wrong to add them to the EU. Preferring a 15 member EU.
They seem to be opposed to many of the countries listed as potential candidates for accession to the EU but they think highly of Norway.
Here's the poll:
This is a shame because I hope for the success of the EU as a counterbalance to the US.
