A regional daily’s readers will get the chance to grill David Cameron ahead of the EU referendum after voting overwhelmingly in favour of Brexit in a newspaper poll.
As previously reported on HTFP, a survey carried out by the Wolverhampton-based Express & Star last month showed four out of five readers want to quit the EU.
However, editor Keith Harrison has said the newspaper will remain neutral in the run-up to the referendum.
In the initiative, billed as “exclusive” by the paper, readers are now being invited to submit questions for Mr Cameron to answer.
The Express & Star will then select 10 of the most common questions which will be sent to Downing Street.
Said Keith: “Following our European Union poll a couple of weeks ago, it is clear the results showed a majority in favour of Brexit.
“What we would like is for the Prime Minister to step back from what has been called by some as Project Fear and start a more convincing conversation about the benefits of staying in the EU.
“This is a great opportunity for readers to ask him their questions and hopefully get straight answers.”
