According to the poll, 35 percent of those who voted to leave the EU in 2016 now want the will of the people to be observed. The survey, conducted by ComRes, an analytics and strategic business, suggests that the tide of opinion is turning, and that more people than ever now want referendum’s result to be honoured.
A majority of 54 percent agreed that Brexit should be respected, while just 25 percent disagreed.
Around 21 percent couldn’t make up their minds.
The real surprise, however, came with previous Remainers now wanting Brexit to be delivered.
Nearly half of those who completed the survey stated that Brexit shouldn’t be postponed until January 31, while 29 percent were certain that the exit date should be stretched.
Last week, Boris Johnson said he would rather “die in a ditch” than extend article 50.
The news came after rebel Tories helped push through legislation compelling him to delay Brexit for three months if he failed to strike a new deal with Brussels in the days leading up to the EU summit on October 17.
The poll also took the fresh reports into consideration, asking participants about their thoughts of the EU offering no concessions to the UK in an exit deal.
Some 43 percent agreed that if the UE made no concessions, the UK UK should leave without a deal on October 31, compared with a 32 percent who disagreed.
What was clear from the poll was the British public’s frustration at an apparently flawed UK constitution.
This was found in the 60 percent who agreed that Brexit showed the unwritten charter was severely in need of reform.
Although 11 disagreed and claimed to be happy with the way principles have developed through law and political conventions over the centuries.
Political loyalties were further revealed when almost half of British adults – 44 percent – said they would rather leave the EU without a deal than have a Corbyn Government.
Though 22 percent of Corbynistas refused to ease-up on their dogmatic pseudo-socialism endeavours, saying they would prefer to have Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister than leaving without any sort of deal.
Oddly, though, exactly half of British adults said they would rather stay in the EU than have a Labour Government with its current leadership – revealing an interesting friction among the public in their politics.
Yesterday, Boris Johnson lost a vote in the commons to hold a general election in October for the second time.
The result came much to the delight of Remainer MPs who fear a Boris victory.
The Prime Minister fell short of a majority to win the motion, gaining only 293 votes.
Opposition MPs had made clear that they would not support an October poll, insisting a law blocking a no-deal Brexit must be implemented first.
Parliament has since been officially prorogued and will reopen on October 14 – just days before the EU summit.
