Williams – New polling shows confidence in Government’s ability to deliver a good Brexit deal is collapsing

New polling conducted by The Guardian/ICM has found that confidence in the Brexit talks ending satisfactorily has hit a new low.

Only 28% think the talks will conclude satisfactorily, against 47% who think they will end unsatisfactorily, a net score of -19, the lowest recorded by The Guardian/ICM polling so far.

 

Commenting, Paul Williams MP, a supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“Confidence in the Government's ability to deliver a good Brexit deal is collapsing, and understandably so: the Brexit that was promised to people is simply not deliverable.

“The talks are bogged down in quicksand over the complex issue of the Northern Ireland border, and the Government's pledge to deliver 'the exact same benefits' as we have now has been revealed as a fantasy.

“With the public's confidence in a positive Brexit outcome fast disappearing, this just reinforces the need for a People's Vote on the terms of the final Brexit deal.”
