TNS: Leave 7 Points Ahead

LEAVE LEAD

After yesterday’s gold standard ICM online and phone polls showing a robust Leave lead, TNS have released new figures showing 47% for Out and 40% for In. This means Leave are now ahead seven points – higher than any poll since YouGov’s nine point lead for Out in February. Remain have won just one poll in the last seven days…

This poll was embargoed til 6pm but the embargo was busted by the Times and Britain Elects.

Whitto Spotted With Black Eye After Chat With Russian Sports Minister

John Whittingdale was spotted sporting a nasty looking black eye on his way into work this morning. Nothing to do with him discussing the violence at the Euros with Russia’s sports minister yesterday, Guido is assured:

“John has a black eye from walking into a lamppost. It was incredibly painful at the time but he’s fine now. He hasn’t been throwing punches in Marseille.”

Fifty years of hurt, and by the looks of it another couple of weeks for Whitto…

Miriam Goes Off Message

miriam

Miriam Durantez Gonzalez, the arch-Europhile aka Mrs Clegg, blasts Cameron’s renegotiation and warns Brussels is not reforming:

“The European Union is crying for reform. Proper reform. Not that Mickey Mouse negotiation that the Prime Minister did. The biggest reform that the EU needs is growth… In my life I have never gone through another moment when I have thought we are in the history books.”

This is the renegotiation Cameron is asking you to vote on – and even Miriam says it’s Mickey Mouse…

Stick It Up Your Juncker: Intervention Coming Next Week

JUNCKER

A well-sourced article in the leading German news magazine Der Spiegel reports that Jean-Claude Juncker is set to make a major intervention in the referendum next week. They say Cameron made an extraordinary deal with Juncker whereby the Commission would keep quiet during the campaign, on the condition that he could intervene in the last few days if the polls had Brexit ahead:

“Juncker had to promise British Prime Minister David Cameron that the EU executive branch would stay out of the Brexit debate… Juncker only managed to convince Cameron to give him a small loophole: If Brexit supporters have a clear lead in polls in the week prior to the June 23 referendum, the Commission president will be allowed to make his voice heard. That, of course, would be too late to significantly shift public opinion, but it would mean that Juncker could not be accused of having done nothing to prevent a Brexit. Under no circumstances does Juncker want to go down in history as the first Commission president to preside over a member state departing the EU.”

The report also confirms Guido’s story from last month that the PM has asked Merkel to stay out of the campaign:

“an appeal from Cameron that Chancellor Angela Merkel stay out of the referendum debate. Even comments intended to provide support are not helpful, the Chancellery was informed”

So what’ll it be, a Scottish-style “vow” to the British people from cognac-swilling Commission chief? That should push Leave over the line…

Alan Johnson: People Aren’t Listening to Us

Asked about immigration on the Today programme, Alan Johnson, the chair of Labour’s Remain campaign, blamed “people” for not “listening” to their arguments:

“We’ve talked about immigration all the way through this. Sometimes people haven’t been listening to us.”

The Remain campaign in one soundbite: if we don’t win, it’s the voters’ fault…

Johnson went on to argue that remaining in the EU helps us control immigration. Voters are listening, and that’s Remain’s problem…

The Sun Comes Out For Brexit

The Sun backs Brexit: “The EU cannot reform. Remain has conducted a deceitful campaign. It has been nasty, cynical, personally abusive and beneath the dignity of Britain. Our country has a glorious history. This is our chance to make Britain even greater, to recapture our democracy, to preserve the values and culture we are rightly […]

Quote of the Day

Brendan O’Neill on the coverage of Jo Cox’s murder:

“I don’t have very high expectations of the British media. But even I am shocked at the speed with which sections of it have sought to make political mileage from Jo Cox’s death. Pro-Remain journalists, swathes of the broadsheet set, are already discussing her death as a consequence of Brexit campaigning, as a foul spin-off of foul politics. They’re saying that of course Brexiteers aren’t directly responsible, but… that wretched “but”, which means “but they are responsible”. Remainers are already pointing a collective finger at the “political climate” cultivated by Brexit and suggesting it nurtured this murder. I thought they would wait, a day perhaps, before marshalling this tragedy to their cause. But no.

Politically exploiting a murder, morally blackmailing Brexiteers to tone down their campaign, and inadvertently diminishing the culpability of the killer by suggesting “the climate” bears some responsibility for what he did — I think it’s possible the British media has just reached a new low, the lowest low.”
