The decision on whether the UK stays inside the European Union in the upcoming referendum, could depend on whether a large number of young people turn out to vote.
An online survey by "Opinium" - on behalf of "The Observer" newspaper - found that 43% of those questioned wanted Britain to leave Europe while 39% wanted the country to stay in. The results may be a setback for pro-Europe campaigners but for those on the opposite side of the fence, it's further proof that Britain is capable of functioning outside the EU. David Owen is a former Foreign Secretary who from 1992 to 1995 also served as EU peace negotiator in the former Yugoslavia. He's also the author of the pamphlet "The UK's In Out Referendum: EU Foreign & Defence Policy Reform". Earlier he came into the studio and he gave Investment Perspectives presenter Juliette Foster his reaction to that survey.
