The OMFIF debate drew an audience of 200 to Westminster yesterday.
The vote at the start of proceedings showed 68% in favour of Remain and just 29% in favour of leaving.
Following the debate, led by myself and Gerard Lyons for Leave, with Lord Adonis and Vicky Pryce for Remain, the vote was 38% for Leave and 60% for Remain, a useful swing of 8%
It demonstrates that even with an audience of well connected establishment figures it is possible to sway opinion if we have a chance to explain our case properly. As latest research shows, this was a far from representative audience, as Leave is doing well overall and is ahead in recent polls.
