Readers to grill Cameron on EU after regional daily’s Brexit poll

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.

The Prime Minister has agreed to answer questions from the readers of Wolverhampton-based daily the Express & Star prior to the 23 June vote.

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.”

    Is this what passes for patriotism these days, a picture of good old bowis in front of a Union Jack? The man who’s presided over the social cleansing of the country’s capital city and said he’s not really interested in ‘all that civil liberty stuff’ – very patriotic.

    I hate the way the blue bloods in this country hijack patriotism when it suits them, the rest of the time though they’d sell the land under your feet to the Chinese if they could make a few quid from it.

    Well said that man. I read somewhere that a tenth of England is still owned by the ‘aristocrats’ who had come over with William the Conqueror in 1066. It’s about time they gave it back.

    I don’t understand how many British people have blamed on Cameron, when the country has been doing so well, almost full employment and an strong pound for so long,.. I went Britain IN the EU!
