Umunna – New polling shows no mandate for a disastrous ‘no deal’ Brexit

New polling shows that 57% of people would back a fresh in-out referendum on the European Union in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.

The polling, conducted by BMG Research on behalf of Left Foot Forward, shows increasing support for another referendum in the case of a ‘no deal’ Brexit. Amongst Labour supporters, the levels of support were even higher, with 74% backing another referendum in the case of no deal.

Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, a leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“There is no mandate for a disastrous no deal Brexit. The Government should stop threatening to leave with no deal and rule it out once and for all.

“Ministers claimed a deal with the 'exact same benefits' as we currently enjoy would be the 'easiest trade deal in history'. It is up to them to deliver.

“With Brexit already damaging our economy and our NHS, and the costs and sheer complexity of leaving our biggest trading partner becoming clearer every day, people are entitled to keep an open mind.”
