What would you say is the most important issue facing Britain today?


The Economist/ Ipsos MORI April 2016 Issues index – concern about the EU rises to the highest level recorded this century

The April 2016 Economist/Ipsos MORI Issues Index reveals a further increase in the importance of the EU as an issue facing Britain.  Three in ten (30%) of the public now mention it as one of the most important issues facing Britain, the highest recorded level since December 1999.  Conservative voters (43%), those living in the south east of England (37%) and those aged 55 and over (43%) are particularly likely to feel this is a big issue.

The European Union is now the third-most mentioned issue facing Britain, behind immigration (41%) and the NHS (39%).
