Poll shows majority want UK troops to pull out By Nigel Morris 10 May 2004
Independent/MOP poll Should British troops pull out of Iraq by 30th June? 55 per cent: YES 28 per cent: NO 17 per cent: DON'T KNOW
Voters support the withdrawal of all British troops from Iraq by the end of next month by a majority of two to one, a poll for The Independent reveals today.
With ministers considering sending more soldiers to Iraq to quell the insurrection against Allied forces, the survey reflects growing public discontent about government policy on the war and occupation.
The poll comes at a turbulent time for the Government, rocked by allegations over the mistreatment of Iraqi captives. Yesterday, in a further embarrassment for Britain and America, it emerged that their ambassadors to Switzerland had been summoned by the Swiss government to demand respect for international law in the treatment of prisoners in Iraq.
The Independent did not say much about their sample size or polling methods, so I don't know if I would realy trust that poll. Yet, I would certainly believe the results. Considering how large of an audience left-wing anti-war news agencies like Gaurdian, Independent and BBC have it would not surprise me. There is a fine line between news and editorial in the UK. I hate to say it, as much as I dislike American press, at least they don't tell us what to think.
