"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Wakey Wakey Sleepy People! Why do only 2% of voters think the EU is a politicial issue?

The chart above is from latest MORI Issues Index and shows how concern about the Common Market/EU/Europe/EURO continues to be at very low levels - something that now concerns only 2% of those polled.

The index has been compiled in the same way for 30 years and involves asking, completely unprompted, what interviewees think are the “most important issues facing Britain today“. There is no limit on the number of answers.

When people are asked about how they view the EU they mostly respond negatively and indeed we have seen how well UKIP has performed in elections at all levels in recent months. But when voters are asked to state what’s most important the EU hardly figures.

H/t: Political Betting



  1. It is so hard to understand how dim people can be,

  2. Hear, Hear, OR. If we could sort out the EU problem first many of the others would just fall away.

  3. If people are dim, OR, then it is easy to understand.

  4. Of course people are dim OR, they've been brainwashed to being dim.

    That's what is wrong with the UK, education is being dumbed down from bright to dim and we just either haven't noticed or have ignored it.
