Immigration is lowest concern on young voters’ Brexit list

Post by Guest on Sun Jan 22, 2017 10:16 am

Young voters aged 18 to 34 believe that reducing immigration is the least important issue Theresa May should focus on as she prepares to take the UK out of the EU, a new poll has found. The survey by Opinium found that people in this age group put reducing numbers coming into the UK last out of 22 priorities, with the availability of jobs, protection of human rights and well-funded public services their main concerns.

The poll commissioned by Brexit Watch, run by thinktank Common Vision, highlights a sharp generational divide in views on the direction in which the UK is heading. It found that 57% of young people are not confident Brexit is being negotiated to suit their interests, against 28% who are confident. It shows that most young people do not back the main premise behind May’s Brexit strategy – that concern about immigration is so great that it should drive government policy. In her Brexit speech last week May made clear that public concern over immigration had left the government with no option but to leave the EU single market, because retaining membership would mean that the UK had to continue to accept EU free movement.

When asked to rate Brexit priorities on a scale of 0 to 10, reducing immigration from the EU scored just 5.85 among 18 to 34-year-olds, below the need to share arts and culture between EU countries (6.34, in 21st place) and reducing poverty (6.21, 19th place.)

Ensuring jobs are available scored highest among young voters (8.02) with protection of human rights second (7.95). Reducing immigration scored far higher among the over-55 age group (7.63) though even among these voters it was still not seen as so important as 12 other issues. Among over-55s, public services and free trade with non-EU countries were judged as most important.

Overall, 57% of 18 to 34-year-olds said they were not confident that Brexit was being negotiated in a way that suits their interests against just 28% who said they were confident. By contrast, those aged over 55 were fairly evenly split, with 41% saying they were confident and 43% saying they were not.

Razz

Too true, that...

It's the narrow-minded fascists (e.g. Tommy) and white supremacist geriatric clubs (e.g. Pte. Stormee..) who told themselves that they were supposedly having a referendum on immigration, rather than a vote on cutting formal ties with the European Community..

Those closeted little ol' gits who arrogantly claim to speak for a majority of Englishmen, but in reality could hold their meetings in a public phonebox.    With room to spare..

To be replaced by a dictatorship?

For example, do you believe in equality for all under the law?

The eu is run by unelected commissioners and an unelected president.


The eu dictates laws/rules/regulations to the UK and we must adopt them regardless of uk public opinion... that is a dictatorship


Leaving the eu means that we restore the powers of law/rule/regulation making to our parliament and directly accountable to the uk electorate... this is democracy!

Uk parliamentary sovereignty and democracy is not a dictatorship.


All within uk should be equally subject to uk law...

The eu currently dictates 75% of uk laws.


We are soon to recover control of 100% of our law making powers.

1) That is a myth

3) We already control a 100% of of our laws

2) We have the European communities act and numerous treaties conceding power to eu and subservience of uk.


3) Not while the bill and treaties said above are in place.

Its a myth

In brief: Simply counting laws does not consider that some laws have more impact than others. Quoted figures have varied wildly from under 10% to 70%. It's possible to justify many of these, depending on which definition of 'UK law' you look at, but those at the higher end count EU rules that aren’t really laws in any meaningful sense.
