Two-thirds of iKBBI members plan to vote for an exit from the EU, according to a recent poll.
A Brexit poll by the Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installers (iKBBI) has revealed that 65% of its members said they would vote to leave the EU, while only a quarter said they would vote to stay in. One-in-10 were undecided.
A total of 4,203 members took part with 82% being installers and installation businesses, 15% were retailers and designers and 3% were manufacturers and distributors.
More than half of those planning to vote for an ‘out’ ruling said their decision was influenced by immigration and the implications migration from Europe and other countries has for the UK.
Other reasons included the belief that the UK would be economically stronger operating alone and that European legislative dictation was holding the country back.
An anonymous participant said: “I’m fed up with our continuous bailing out of other failing EU countries. The UK has a severe immigration issue, not being helped by the Europeans who allow free transit through their countries, en route to ours.”
From those surveyed, 93% said they would be voting in June, 2% said they wouldn’t be and 5% said they were still undecided.
Rather worryingly, despite the figures quoted above, 87% still said they felt they were not in a position to make an informed choice, as they didn’t feel they had the full facts.
