British action in Libya (still) unpopular
I thought the difference between ComRes, showing public opinion against British military action in Libya, and YouGov, showing support, was down to timing. ComRes’s survey for ITV News was carried out just before and just after the planes went in on 19 March. YouGov’s surveys have been carried out wholly afterwards.
By a margin of 47 to 43 per cent, people do not believe the Government was right to commit British forces to action in Libya.
That is quite surprising, given that all three main parties support this intervention, and our armed forces are currently engaged.
