Third of ‘Leave’ voters think MI5 spies working with govt to stop Brexit - poll



Up to one third of Leave voters think the UK’s intelligence agency MI5 is conspiring with the government to stop Britain leaving the European Union in the upcoming referendum, according to a poll by YouGov.

The poll, which was carried out for radio station LBC, also found that 28 percent of all voters believe the referendum is rigged, while 64 percent of UKIP supporters thought the vote on Thursday is likely to be fixed.

A total of 21 percent of the 1,656 people surveyed believed MI5 was working with the government to try to stop Brexit, while 40 percent said it was “probably false.”

When divided into political parties, 30 percent of those who voted for UKIP in last year’s general election backed the view on MI5, followed by Labour voters at 22 percent.

The findings from the recent poll highlight a lack of trust in the British government’s ability to carry out the EU referendum campaign.
