EU referendum: British concerns resonate elsewhere in Europe - BBC

11 Mar 2016

In recent years any outbreak of British exceptionalism would spark a torrent of angry headlines in other parts of Europe....A new survey shows many British concerns resonate in other parts of Europe. The survey was carried out by the University of Edinburgh and the German think tank d/part, and funded by the UK in a Changing Europe - an initiative to bridge the gap between the EU and British voters. They spoke to 8,000 people in six European countries - Germany, France, Ireland, Poland, Sweden and Spain.

There was broad support for the UK remaining in the EU. In Spain, the figure was as high as 81%. The most lukewarm country was France with 56% support.
