Wilson – The will of the people is clear: they want a People’s Vote

New polling by Sky News shows that 50% want a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal, with 40% opposed.

More generally, the polling shows that “British public opinion has shifted sharply against Brexit”, finding that “two-thirds of the public - including a majority of Leave voters - now think the outcome of Brexit negotiations will be bad for Britain.”

 

Commenting, Phil Wilson MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“We have reached a tipping point. With polling now consistently showing huge support for a People's Vote, the will of the people is clear - they think Brexit is a mess and they want a say on the final deal.

“The car-crash that is the Prime Minister’s Chequers proposal has clearly succeeded in uniting the country - almost everyone thinks it would be terrible.

“With public opinion clearly against both the Chequers proposal and a no deal Brexit, the only way to sort out this shambles is through a People's Vote on the final terms of Brexit. Because Brexit is a big deal, but it's not yet a done deal.”
