British people wants a people’s vote on Brexit


 

 

Around 52 per cent of the UK wants a people’s vote on Brexit, a survey claims.

Only 31 per cent are opposed, according to Open Britain, and Labour supporters are most keen by 65 to 21 per cent.

Amongst 18 to 34-year-olds, which includes 500,000 people who could not vote in the 2016 referendum, the idea leads by 61 to 21.

James McGrory, of Open Britain, said: The people know the final deal is too important to be left to the politicians alone.

The idea of a vote is overwhelmingly ­supported by Labour voters and it is difficult to see how Jeremy Corbyn could resist.

Open Britain launches a campaign today calling for a public vote on whatever Brexit deal Theresa May presents to parliament after the summer.

It would have to take place before March 2019.
