Thomas – Polling shows British people know Government is making a shambolic mess of Brexit

New polling by YouGov shows disagreement with Britain’s decision to quit the European Union has reached its highest point since the 2016 Brexit referendum.

The YouGov survey found 47% of voters thought the decision to leave was wrong, against just 40% who said it was the right thing to do – the widest margin since the weekly survey began two years ago. 62% also said the Government was handling Brexit negotiations badly, against 23% who thought it was doing well.


Commenting, Gareth Thomas MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“The Government is making a shambolic mess of Brexit and the British people know it. They’re fast losing confidence that the Prime Minister is going to come back from the negotiations with anything other than a bad deal.

"The Government knows they're making a hash of Brexit, that's why they're trying to ram their Brexit bill through Parliament without proper scrutiny, and why they've again delayed the publication of a white paper setting out their negotiating position.

“It’s becoming increasingly clear that Brexit is too big a deal for the politicians to be left to sort out on their own. The 65 million people of this country must have their voices heard as well. That’s why we need a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
