72% say no to EU membership
In a new opinion poll, 72 percent of Norwegians say no to Norwegian membership in the EU. Only 12 percent said yes.
This poll is the worst for the “yes” side in Norway in a very long time,” writes newspaper Dagbladet.
“This is a monster measurement. For the ‘yes’ side, this is like walking up the monster hill in the Tour de Ski without poles,” says “No To EU” leader Henning Olaussen.
Even the Conservatives, the main pro-party, said 65 percent of voters rejected the EU. Party EU spokesman Nikolai Astrup believes that one must see the poll in the light of the economic crisis among several European countries, like Greece and Italy.
“We have considerable work to do,” he admits.
