I completed this survey and it was *designed* to get the result of backing May’s deal.
It separated out the 2nd ref Q, so the first Q was a stark choice between May’s deal or no deal. So of course it’s going to get votes for May’s deal. Even I had to vote for that!... https://t.co/cJewJwDRxt
… and here is a screenshot of the survey the IoD did with members. You can see how the question is designed to lead to a result. No businessperson in their right mind is going to go for No Deal, but most don’t want Brexit at all, so it doesn’t give that option... pic.twitter.com/j3Y5xSn1ux
…you may be interested to know at this point that the IoD appointed a Head Of Europe Trade & Policy to lead their Brexit response. And surprise surprise, she previously worked at a business anti-EU campaign run by Matthew Elliot, who then went on to run Vote Leave...
… Vote Leave of course was found to have broken the law in procuring the Brexit result it wanted, and there are currently wide ranging criminal investigations into the Leave campaigns. So you would hope the IoD would be smart to being played by their network. :(
