A majority of Britons believe that David Cameron’s EU renegotiation deal is “bad” for Britain, a snap poll by Sky News has revealed.
Over a thousand people were asked by Sky News whether they believed Mr. Cameron had secured a “good” or a “bad” deal for Britain, as his famous “renegotiation” came to light yesterday afternoon.
The Prime Minister was pilloried by even the pro-EU mainstream media this morning, and now it can be revealed that 69 per cent of Britons feel the same way.
Just 31 per cent said they thought Mr. Cameron had secured a good deal for Britain, with the breakdown of these figures revealing even more interesting trends.
Fifty-seven per cent of young people thought Mr. Cameron’s deal was bad, with 43 per cent being in favour. A whopping 76 per cent of those aged over 55 slammed the PM’s deal, and 70 per cent between 35 and 54 years of age called it “bad”.
Those in the North of England thought worst of the deal, while Scottish voters were most complimentary about it, with 41 per cent endorsing it.
