First Brexit Poll After Jo Cox Death Reveals Stunning Result

Tyler Durden's picture

Before the assassination of British MP Jo Cox, the "Leave" campaign had been surging in recent polls...

This was before The IMF unleashed their own version of "we are all doomed" and before Ms. Cox was murdered.

The sad death of pro-EU British MP Jo Cox prompted a buying spree in Sterling that carried on through today as hope sprung eternal that her assassination (and the efforts to politicize the actions of a mad man) would lead to either a delayed vote or sympathetic pro-EU "Remain" swing. JPMorgan hinted before the close that was not the case and now, as USA Today reports, the first post-Cox poll reveals a shocking swing in "Remain" voters...

British support for remaining in the European Union has weakened in the wake of the murder of the pro-EU politician Jo Cox, according to an online research company Friday.


Qriously, a London-based technology start-up that gathers data and intelligence about consumers through mobile phone apps, found that backing among likely voters for Britain's EU membership has dropped to 32% from 40% before her death.


The poll was based on 1,992 British adults surveyed on June 13-16, and then 1,002 on June 17 — the day after Cox was shot and killed in northern England. The start-up claims to have held the first such survey on the topic since the lawmaker's slaying. Most of Qriously’s surveys are done for corporate brands and it has not been previously conducted an EU referendum poll.


Respondents were asked: "Imagine the EU referendum were held today. Would you vote for the U.K. to remain a member of the European Union, or leave the European Union?" They were given three options: "Remain in the EU," "Leave the EU," or "Don't know."

While liquidty is extremely thin, Cable has slid a little on the news in late trading...


With news that The Times newspaper has come out in support of the "Remain" campaign (while The Sun, The Spectator, and The Telegraph all support "Leave"), the fact that Qriously found that 52% will vote to leave the bloc in a national referendum on June 23 (unchanged from before the parliamentarian's death) is telling to the social divide in Britain, but the weakening support for remaining in the EU coincided with a large move toward "Don't know," which leaped to 16% from 9% before Cox's assassination.

The major British polling firms, including YouGov, were expected to release their first EU opinion surveys following Cox's murder over the weekend.

*  *  *

In a surprisingly late release - one can only imagine in response to the poll above - BMG/Herald has released poll which - surprise, surprise - shows a big lead for "Remain"...


Completely out of line with all recent polls... But digging into the numbers, we get a different picture...

EU has produced a commemerative lollipop in honor of the victim --- a coxsucker

Wow, so the false flag had the opposite effect than what was intended.

The Alarmist's picture

The question that needs answering is, "Who made the call ... Cameron or Corbyn?"


BTW, this is going to be just like the referendums on the Lisbon Treaty ... if the vote is only 52% for leave, TPTB will say the result is inconclusive, and maybe they will allow revoting until the voters get it right.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I just read this vote is 'consultive' and not legally binding.

The Alarmist's picture

Yep, because the EU is a irrevocable mutual suicide pact ... I think the SCOTUS decided that for every United States of Whatever in Texas v. White, which applies to the whole world because US law governs everything everywhere.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I mean it is not legally binding upon the English leadership/legislature to actually implement the negotiations to end EU membership.

It is entirely possible for Brexit to 'win' and 6 months down the road, TPTB decide times are too turbulent (pick your excuse) to go through with it.

Contact your broker-  Yeah, well he's a dead man walking, and so are you.

And your pensions, and your retirement plan.

It'd be funny if it weren't so fucking sad.

The future will be just as the past has been-  you produce or you die.

The establishment must be at a loss when even the sheeple can recognise a false flag and a useful idiot when they see one?

Vincent.Vega's picture

Things just don't work like that.

This world is not ruled by the normal people, but by the "high priests" of Egypt (and Atlantis -- before having "reloaded the matrix") which created the 'crowd/elite" model of the society and employ the so called "Biblical project" to keep the dumbified slaves in their cattle-like state.

Elites are simply managers, and for those managers to be more efficient, they are detached from females. The reason being women are only concerned with the short-term tasks (e.g. feeding their kids today or getting a nice vehicle, a new pair of boots etc.), plus they are way too emotional ("how do I look hun?"); therefore, to be ideal servants for the "high priests", the elite members are brought up in boy-only colleges where they are turned into homosexuals from the get go.

Prince William is a good example. So, for the rest of population not to be too shocked by these flaming "elite" homosexuals, they need to be "straighten out" a little bit, for them to be able to hide their sexual _disorientation_ in public. To achieve that to some extent, so called "mommies" are used -- and for William they used Alexandra Tolstoy. There was one problem though, she actually converted him back and he even wanted to marry her, which would've been impossible -- indeed, how can you mix the royal blood with a lower form of life?

And then "Kate" Middleton was _chosen_ to marry William; upon finding out the truth about her real role, she had a nervous breakdown and eventually had to be lobotomized -- and now she lives in a constant state of orgasm, with her idiotic smile non-stop.



That's the whole point behind the propaganda of the homosexual lifestyle in the recent years, the crowd/slaves have to accept their rulers the way they are, but in the information age, how can you hide the fact that, say, Obama is a homosexual?

Regarding that completely fake "shooting", which was a black op, it's the first step of the "Overton window" approach, to get through the following phases: "unthinkable"/"radical"/"acceptable"/"sensible"/"popular"/"policy":

So, the discourse was instigated and is going, and slaves will be discussing the topic and various details (Obama, Trump, black op vs. shooting, Moslem slaves vs. Christian slaves, sodomites or just poor gays -- doesn't matter, you guy are discussing all that shit 24/7) -- but slaves will remain slaves, only quite soon will have to prove to be homosexual to be get an education, a job, open a bank account etc.



The Grand Canyon (as any other canyon) as well as the Monument Valey are just former mining sites, check out for yourself the formations left by the modern bucket-wheel excavators:

The current civilization is not the first technologically developed one on this planet, and uranium was extracted from the Grand Canyon long before (google images for "Grand Canyon radiation") and a few hundred feet of soil ware removed from the Monument Valey area.

Why is it surprising the leave vote is leading?  I would be shocked if they didn't vote to leave.  Who wants a pinhead from Brussels telling them how to grow there damn tomatoes? Same for the idiot pinheads in Congress...

Conspiracy theories are often far more entertaining than reality.

jeff montanye's picture

true enough.  going to a men's college made me far more outgoing (in a semi-desperate way) with women which had mostly only upside when i returned to the "real world".

Drachma's picture

And reality is more often the result of conspiracy between principle actors, good or bad. There are no coincidences. Cheers.

detached.amusement's picture

at this stage of the game, they're far more often truer than "reality," too

HardAssets's picture

@Vincient.Vega - that's some crazy shit you wrote. At minimum, very creative. But it compels me to investigate further. Particularly on the part of why so many of the elites errand boys are queer.

And the whole explanation I always heard about why Catholic priests are unmarried always raised my suspicions. Gotta redirect all that natural human sexual reproductive & off-spring protection energy into serving the hierarchy.

That's the problem -- people instinctively know something is wrong with this but they still back away from doing the right thing.
The populace should have recognized that this is a crime but the vote has to go on.
If some ordinary person got attacked and robbed on the street and died from his or her wounds, the vote would have continued.
If this event happened without the disputed claim that the assailant shouted "Britain first!" it would have been looked at as a violent crime.
But because of the inclusion of his alleged words the whole thing took on a different meaning and the people took on some kind of collective guilt.

fleur de lis's picture

Slightly OT but the State Bolsheviks are out of control here, too.
Some stupid Alabama .gov social worker thinks she's the sheriff.
Child Protective Services took a newborn baby was taken from its teen mother while she was still in hospital with her family nearby.

It's a bit like what happened to that teen in Massachusetts who was taken from her family against her will by the .gov hospital for her own good.
They had to go through legal convulsions and media exposure to get her back. And nobody got fired.

How many other babies are taken by CPS unnecessarily?

Who gives them the authority for such egregious intrusions with absolute impunity? Is that what state badges are for? Threatening families for resisting and official kidnap operation?

How very convenient that the family has little or no recourse to .gov thugs.

That mentally deficient social worker and her whole parasitic .gov agency should be jailed for extreme stupidity.

Colonel's picture

+10,000 for mentioning it. The abuses of CPS on the most vulnerable in society are a testament to governments true nature.

 "Child Protective Services took a newborn baby was taken from its teen mother while she was still in hospital with her family nearby."

And they do that all the time. There is also the mothers that have committed suicide after CPS took their babies and auctioned them off. A completely sick psychopathetic branch of state governments getting their funding from the feds.

You're right the broker's a dead man walking....i just keep an account for the notifications at this point. I took my lumps long ago.

Everything i HAD is safely at the bottom of the lake. Round here those that dont produce seem to get lead poisoning.

Too many MPs being shot to move forward with Brexit.  They'll have to time it so that they don't run out of MPs.

Yep, wouldn't be the first time a vote by EU member(s) have been ignored. The EU is a soft dictatorship, not democracy.

Of course in truth the United States learned it's central body was a corporate dictatorship and Constitutional union was a suicide pact long about 1861 at the hands of one of the most notable sociopathic artists of deception in US History, "honest" (sic) Abraham Lincoln.

All you need to do as an evil MF in the EU is kill some noteworthy individual?

Gosh, are you people over there that pathetic?

well, an arch-douche comes to mind (although a fabrication, too)... I guess the banker class has everybody pegged.

... I suggest that stacking and stashing is a reasonable alternative to the pathos.

That is interesting. If we vote leave, Cameron could ignore us. There are SIXTY MILLION of us, can't these politicians count? Seriously, if the sixty million ever organise, the elites will be held to account. Questions might not even be asked! 

Not you cog but others can begin / accelerate the awakening process here (Cog is already awakening and doing far more than i)

Quit smoking Hopium.


For example...Most Republicans cannot stand the Obamacare Death Tax. But even after their Republican Congresscritter (What you'd call a Minister of Parliament) VOTED TO FUND IT, NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE, they still go to the polls and re-elect them to represent them.


Your electorate is no different.

Cameron will listen to you the way Obama listens to the American people.


87% of people polled voted AGAINST Obamacare ... yet Soweto Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the other Democrats forced it down Amercan throats. And it's been a total disaster here in America.

TrustbutVerify's picture

87% were against it but so many of that 87% voted for Obama.  Now they get to eat their self-made Obamacare debacle and force everyone else to eat it, too.  Mindless Obama hipsters, perhaps, are coming of age.  

Bob's picture

TrustbutVerify indeed.  According to Gallup, it was 51% in favor of that POS.

How could you guys be echoing such patently impossible numbers against it?

Y'all should get out more, at the very least!

I went on a look see, most of the polling is done by them.

No worries. They made a killing on their Humana Stock options.
