The UK Speaks: Goodbye Greece
July 10, 2015 | By David Lyndon |
- Four in ten (38%) Brits think Greece should leave the Euro, compared to only a quarter (26%) who think they should stay
- This is more pronounced among older Brits – nearly half (46%) of those over 55 think Greece should leave the European currency
- Ironically, the northern regions are most likely to want Greece to leave the Euro – some empathy perhaps from Scottish nationalism.
- Complacency abounds – over a third (36%) don’t care or don’t know if Greece should stay or go
