Britain backs Bremain: Final polls shows voters set to back Remain


From Beckham to top FTSE bosses, Remain camp gains more backers

The Remain camp has surged in the latest polls with voters increasingly shifting towards Britain staying within the EU.

In an ORB poll for the Telegraph, the Remain campaign is at a seven-point lead garnering 53 per cent of the vote compared to Leave’s 46 per cent.

Last week, Leave held a one-point lead among definite voters with 49 per cent to Remain’s 48 per cent. 

The news comes as ex-England captain David Beckham said he will vote Remain as “we should be facing the problems of the world together”.

In a statement posted on Facebook, the football star said: “We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong.

“For our children and their children we should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone.

“For these reasons I am voting to Remain.”

“I’m passionate about my country and whatever the result of Thursday’s referendum, we will always be Great. Each side has the right to their opinion and that should always be respected whatever the outcome of the European Referendum.”
