KBB Industry Brexit poll reveals one-sided results!
The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom Installers (iKBBI) has conducted its own Brexit poll which has revealed strong support for an OUT decision by its members.
In all, 4,203 participated in the poll, 82% of whom were installers / installation businesses, 15% were retailers / designers and 3% were manufacturer / distributors.
* 65% said they would vote to leave the EU
* 25% said they would vote to remain in the EU
* 10% said they were undecided
Of the 65% who said they would vote to exit, over half stated the reason for the vote to leave was motivated by immigration and the implications migration from Europe (& beyond) has on the UK.
Other motives included the belief that the UK would be economically stronger operating alone and European legislative dictation was holding the country back.
One of those anonymously surveyed stated: "I'm fed up with our continuous bailing out of other failing EU countries," and continued: "The UK has a severe immigration issue, not being helped by the Europeans who allow free transit through their countries, on route to ours,".
93% of those canvassed said they would be voting in June, 2% said they wouldn't be and 5% said they were undecided.
Interestingly, 87% said they were not in a position to make an informed choice, stating that they didn't feel as if they had the full facts. Clearly the politicians have more to do!
The Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installers is the UK's first and only government sanctioned and not-for-profit registered organisation dedicated to the kitchen, bedroom & bathroom installation industry.
