Britain doesn’t want Brexit

Over a million people marched in London yesterday demanding a new People’s Vote on Brexit. The tide has turned. There is now no doubt that Britain doesn’t want Brexit.

Today Remainers outnumber Leavers. There are no longer 17.4 million Leave supporters.

According to analysis of recent polling, there are now only around 14.8 million Leave supporters compared to around 16.5 million Remain supporters.

Remain has been in the lead in over 60 consecutive national opinion polls since the 2017 general election.

YouGov’s latest polling this month shows that if there is now a new referendum with a choice between remaining in the EU or leaving on the government’s Brexit terms, Remain would win by 61% to 39%.

If those who didn’t vote in the 2016 referendum decide to vote in a new referendum, Remain could gain an extra 4.7 million voters net, according to new research by YouGov.

A petition to revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU has now reached a record 4,899,767 signatures (as of writing – it’s going up at a rate of 545 signatures per minute).

Remember, the majority for Leave in the referendum was just 1.3 million. The margin for Remain in a new referendum could greatly exceed that.

If the government now goes ahead with Brexit, they will be going against the will of the people. Britain doesn’t want Brexit.
