'Remarkable' 10-Point Lead For Brexit In Shock New Poll

It's the biggest "Leave" lead recorded by ORB in polls for the newspaper.

Germany's finance minister has ruled out Britain having access to the European single market in the event of Brexit, directly contradicting the reassurances of Boris Johnson and the Leave campaign.

Likening a vote to leave as landing on the "big snake" in a game of economic snakes and ladders, he said it was a gamble the United Kingdom simply could not afford to take.

Former European commissioner Lord Mandelson said Mr. Schaeuble's intervention dealt a final blow to claims of some within the Leave camp that the United Kingdom would be able to maintain trade with its former EU partners after Brexit on a similar basis to before.

Britain will hold a referendum on European Union membership on June 23.

If Britain leaves, Schaeuble added, Europe in the end "will manage without Britain".

Mr. Schaeuble told news magazine Der Spiegel: "It would require the country to abide by the rules of a club from which it now wants to withdraw".

He told Der Spiegel: "If the majority in Britain opts for Brexit, that would be a decision against the single market". Some 78% of "leave" supporters said they would definitely vote, while only 66% of "remain" supporters said the same, according to the report.

Anand Menon, director of the United Kingdom in a Changing Europe and professor of European politics and foreign affairs at King's College London, said: "It's now more imperative than ever that the public can be provided with as much factual information about the EU as possible before they cast their vote".

The 28 European Union ministers are due to agree on Friday more strict rules for gun purchase and ownership, a policy proposed after Islamist attacks in Paris killed 130 people in November, but one that has since been watered down. "And then we will accept them back one day if that's what they want".

"How would the Netherlands, which has traditionally been very closely allied with Britain, react, for example?".

Answering accusations the Government was engaged in an operation created to induce fear in voters over Brexit, Mr. Osborne said: "There is a lot to be scared of".

He said it would be "a wake-up call and a warning not to continue with business as usual".

Accused of scaring the British people about the consequences of Brexit, he replied by saying "there is a lot to be scared of".

The Brexit vote is one thing they are worrying about.
