THE FRENCH ARE VOTING ON THE E.U. TODAY, but we won’t know the results until all the polls have closed. Right now the No vote seems to be ahead:

On Thursday (26 May) the No was still ahead (55 per cent), according to an Ipsos poll, with 66 per cent of the people saying their choice is definitive.

Only 23 per cent predicted a Yes victory, compared to 49 per cent saying they thought the No would win.

And on Friday, an Ifop poll put the No camp at 56 per cent, whereas a TNS Sofres poll put it at 51 per cent.

There are a lot of undecideds, though.
