Brexit impact Cyprus
Relations between Britain and the EU are deteriorating fast

The campaign for Britain to stay in the European Union has taken a three-point lead over the rival “Out” camp ahead of Thursday’s EU membership referendum, according to the first opinion poll conducted after a fatal attack on a lawmaker.

The Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday newspaper put support for “In” at 45 percent ahead of “Out” on 42 percent, according to the Press Association news agency.

Survation’s previous poll, which was conducted for financial markets firm IG, had shown “Out” ahead of “In” by 45-42 percent.

That poll was published on Thursday shortly before Jo Cox, a member of parliament for the opposition Labour party, was shot and stabbed to death by a man who gave his name as “death to traitors, freedom for Britain” when he appeared in court on Saturday.

The new Survation poll was conducted on Friday and Saturday.
