If you're able to vote in the forthcoming British referendum, which way do you intend to vote?


This poll is anonymous (to forum plebs, at least). It will close this time next week.

Hope you don't mind, I added a third option. Eligible to vote doesn't mean going to vote.

Re: British exit from the EU: updated poll June 3rd

Wouldn't it be good to ask only UK passport holders that have registered to vote, to vote for this poll?
All other votes are irrelevant anyway.

Do you want only the Brits who can vote in reality to vote here?
To give an indication of what the outcome is likely to be based on EF members it would make sense for only the people who are eligible to vote here.

In reality it won't be the case as demonstrated by Lewton's response above.

I am a Brit who is not eligible to vote so I haven't voted in the poll.

oops, sorry, I deleted the post you quoted, as I realized it was a stupid question (DB had mentioned what he wanted in his first post).

Re: British exit from the EU: updated poll June 3rd

I voted in the poll, but in real life I can't be arsed to vote for it as its requires more effort then clicking a radio button on a forum.

Well, it does seem that the UK Electoral Commission doesn't follow that rule themselves:

Software glitch indeed!

Re: British exit from the EU: updated poll June 3rd

Really, unless only EF members are eligible to vote, the poll is meaningless. We're about the least representative cohort of Brits around.

Not really. I'm curious to see how the land lies with people on EF.

We'll find out what everyone else thinks at the end of June.

Absolutely useless unless you make the vote public so that we can discount the votes of people like Lewton who is Greek living in Germany.

Having said that, my old college mate who runs an expat website in Spain is running a similar poll and having the same issues.

What's a Kipper, besides a smoked fish?

They are flat, & cheap.

Desperate black drivers, when business is flat have to eat kippers as thats all the can afford. Perhaps referring to everyday IT nerds who in the UK would earn £25k but can earn CHF120k in Switzerland.

I don't really care either way. It's just an internet poll. People can take it or leave it.
