BCCJ EU Referendum Poll Results

June 14, 2016


The EU has changed significantly since Britain voted to stay in the EU in a referendum in 1975. In response to growing calls from his own Conservative MPs and the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Prime Minister David Cameron promised to hold a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU if he won the 2015 UK general election. Mr Cameron said: "It is time for the British people to have their say. It is time to settle this European question in British politics."

On Thursday 23 June 2016, the UK will vote in a new referendum and the question will be: "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?" 

To gain an impression of BCCJ member views on the topic, the BCCJ asked members regardless of nationality to vote anonymously in a "BCCJ EU Referendum". The results of this "just for fun" poll (see below) were shared at our event The EU Referendum - views from the C-suite on June 14.

Poll Questions

1) Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?
