Brexit game changer: A third of Britons say they will vote leave if Turkey joins EU, by Caroline Wheeler and Marco Giannangeli.
Given how tight the polls are, this would be enough to swing the vote for the leave campaign. … Almost a quarter of those polled (23.6 per cent) said they were much more likely to vote to leave the EU if there was a political union with Turkey.
It comes as the Home Office admitted it had not carried out a full impact assessment of what Turkish membership would mean to the UK, including the population change, despite admitting in 2011 that it was “crucial” to do so.
Classic. The bureaucrats and government know full well, and avoid the issue because it does not sit their agenda. Whose interests are they acting in?
