Brexit: a majority of Brits now favour staying in the EU

The poll carried out by Survation and Channel 4 quizzed 20,000 people, finding that 105 local authority areas that voted Leave in 2016 would support Remain.

However, while it was backed by 63% of people who voted Remain, it was backed by just 20% of Leave voters.

In the constituency of Boston (in the East of England), which had recorded the highest score in favour of Brexit in 2016 with 75.56%, the vote would fall by more than five points, to 70.36%, if a further referendum were to be held.

Northern Isles MP Alistair Carmichael said that the results were "no surprise" and that the door is still open for another referendum owing to the political mess in Westminster.

Most German firms that export to Britain are poorly prepared for a no-deal Brexit, a survey by the IW economic institute showed on Tuesday, highlighting the risk that a disorderly British exit from the European Union could hurt Europe's largest economy.

"I would also say, some of the people I know voted remain are now so bored and frustrated with this process they to would back a Brexit".

If there was a second referendum on Brexit tomorrow, should the United Kingdom remain or leave?

"The negotiators are working hard and a running commentary isn't helpful".

"Theresa May needs to take responsibility for her botched Brexit".

Ms McDonald was speaking to the media after it emerged that Leo Varadkar told UK Prime Minister Theresa May in a phone conversation that he was willing to consider proposals for a review clause in any backstop plan.

Karen Bradley, Northern Ireland's Secretary of State, last month provided assurances that the British government will not repudiate the "backstop" commitment in Brexit negotiations, contradicting one of her party's main negotiators.

EU law expert Professor Steve Peers told this newspaper: 'I think there became an increased chance of a deal once the EU apparently agreed to a UK-wide customs union with the EU in the withdrawal agreement'.

For example, a majority back a liberal UK-EU immigration policy after Brexit, in which EU and UK citizens would be able to live and work in each other's countries (76%).

Lidington also said London would stand by the written commitments it had already made on the backstop, which include the agreement that it would apply unless and until a better solution is found.

However, a large majority of respondents want the United Kingdom to have an independent trade policy after Brexit (75%).
