Bookmaker Says “The Only Way is OUT” For The County

Star Sports have made Essex the most likely county to vote to leave the EU in the UK’s forthcoming referendum- with an odds-on price of 4/7 to leave, and 5/4 to stay. Meanwhile Scottish and Northern Irish voters are strongly fancied to vote to remain in the EU.

Jamie Loughead, Star Sports spokesman, comments:

essexOverall we make the UK odds-on at 2/5 to vote to stay in the EU, but regionally the picture is very mixed. We make East Anglian counties Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex all odds-on to vote against staying in Europe. There seems to be great anti-European feeling across much of the East of England, as far north even as Grimsby and as far south as Hastings. There isn’t a North/South divide on the referendum, there’s an East/West divide.

He continued:

The large metropolitan cities all look likely to vote to stay in the EU, and those in Scotland and Northern Ireland are staunchly behind remaining in the EU.
