BT deleted results of poll showing 80% of their 20,000 users want to leave the EU

A couple of days ago an article appeared on the website reporting that 4 out of 5 of their 20,000 users intended to vote to leave the EU.

Yesterday the link disappeared from the website if you visited from the UK but remained on the site if you visited from the EU. Even if you clicked on the link in the EU, the article had been removed.

InvestmentWatch suggests that BT were leaned on by the British government or the EU to remove the article but the order is more likely to have come from closer to home: the Chief Executive of BT is a signatory on one of the Remain campaign's letters from big business telling us to vote to stay in the EU.
