With the Welsh Assembly elections out of the way – now comes the really serious business – the referendum on Britain’s continued membership of the European Union.
As might be expected these days , every political campaign seems to be fought out on that bellwether turf of British politics – the pavements of Penarth – and this one is proving no exception .
Today the “Vote Leave” campaigners were out leafleting Saturday-morning shoppers in Windsor Road and – according to them, persuading quite a few local residents that Penarth – and the rest of the UK come to that – would be much better-off out of the EU.
A reminder that the main issue in this campaign is Immigration – and the regaining some sort of control of Britain’s borders – wasn’t far away as a Romanian accordionist across the road serenaded the campaigners with an unidentifiable Eastern European medley.
The Financial Times poll of polls indicates “Remain” is at 46% whilst “Leave” is at 43%
Polling is on June 23rd
