Many voters don’t believe Brexit will happen

London, July 2 (IANS) More than a third of voters do not think Britain will definitely leave the European Union – despite the referendum result, a poll has found.

Of 1,077 people polled by Ipsos MORI for BBC Newsnight, 22 per cent said they did not know whether Brexit would actually happen, and 16 per cent said they believed Britain would remain a member of the EU, Independent online reported on Saturday.

The same poll revealed that almost half of the voters believe there should be a general election before Britain begins negotiations, so the public can vote on policies for life outside the EU.

More than half of voters – including 67 per cent of people who voted Leave – say the current government and MPs do not reflect the views of the British public towards the EU.

Nine in 10 said they would not change their vote if there were to be a second EU referendum – with only 5 per cent of Leave voters and 2 per cent of Remain voters saying they would vote differently.

Another recent survey showed up to 7 per cent of Leave voters – around 1.2 million people – now regret their choice, but a spokesperson for the Prime Minister said a second referendum was “not remotely on the cards”.
