• Harborough polling for EU Membership
    Article: Jan 17, 2019

    A Populus poll has shown that voters in Harborough, Oadby and Wigston now support our continued membership of the European Union.

    The poll of over 8,000 people across the UK was then analysed to predict opinion in each constituency. A similar method successfully predicted the result of the last US Presidential election in 50 out of 51 States.

    Local Liberal Democrats have called on Harborough, Oadby and Wigston's Conservative MP to back a Peoples Vote to sort out the Brexit mess.

    The Conservative MP (Neil O'Brien) is a keen supporter of Theresa May's Deal, which last night suffered the biggest defeat in the Commons by any government since WWI. At a recent Prime Minister's Questions, he only read out letters in favour of the deal, even though local residents have told us that they have written to him with the opposite view.

    Liberal Democrat Leader Sir Vince Cable was welcomed to Market Harborough and Oadby yesterday as he met local business leaders, community organisations and was quizzed by local residents.

    Sir Vince arrived at Market Harborough railway station to view the improvements there. Vince said that local Lib-Dem group leader Cllr. Phil Knowles, who backs a People's Vote on Brexit, with an option to continue with our membership of the European Union, had a view that "probably coincides with more people".
