Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If a referendum on EU membership were held across the bloc today, a majority in favour of remaining would be impossible to reach in the UK, Czech Republic and Italy

That's an interesting contorsion. Desperately trying to find something negative to say about Europeans' attachment to Europe.
According to the poll, 47% of Czechs would vote to stay, 24% to leave. That's close to a two thirds majority. 49/19 in Italy, that's over two thirds.

I suppose it's an interesting thought experiment : design a referendum where unless an absolute majority of eligible voters votes to continue the status quo, the reverse applies.

Most journalists are hacks. And the pro - anti EU frame is a way to replace a lot of politics coverage with horse race bullshit, that they love more than anything.
