Another day, another survey on business sentiment surrounding the EU referendum. Today a new Guradian poll has the SME vote evenly split between leave and remain.
The survey asked the owners of more than 500 companies with fewer than 250 employees, and the results gave the Remain camp a barely visible lead of one per cent, with the results 38 to 37 per cent,
To illustrate that, in May the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) issued its final survey of members that gave a 54 per cent majority to the Remain vote.
In April, former BCC director general John Longworth, who resigned from his role earlier this year to speak openly in the referendum debate, wrote “Multinational corporations, which represent only around five per cent of the businesses in Britain, are short-termist and narrowly focused.”
