POLL: Should Britain hold an in/out EU referendum?


Former Labour prime minister Tony Blair returned to the fold this week. Or to be more specific, he returned to warn that the Conservative promise of an in/our EU referendum was a sop to UKIP that risked unleashing economic uncertainty should David Cameron win the General Election.

Critics responded by labelling Blair (and by extension Ed Miliband, who has ruled out an EU referendum should Labour win power) anti-democratic.

Now we want your view. Whether you support Britain’s membership of the European Union or not, should Britain have an in/out referendum? Is it, as some suggest, anti-democratic not to have one, or could the same be said about lots of things which we do not – and should not – hold referendums for?

We want to hear from you. The result of the survey will be published next week.
