We are not alone

According to the Austrian newspaper, Die Presse, an increasing number of Austrians think EU membership was a mistake, as recorded by a poll by the Austrian Association for European Policy (OeGfE).

In this poll, 42 percent currently believe that the decision to join the EU was wrong, and just under half of the 1,070 people questioned said that the decision was correct.

However, two thirds of the population still say that their country should remain in the EU, with only 27 percent favouring a withdrawal. But a massive 80 per cent agree that Brussels "concentrates too much on business interests and too little on people".

The same proportion is convinced that "the large member states in particular support their own rather than common European interests".
