Poll of GB adults on their views on the prorogation of Parliament Supreme Court ruling on other general Brexit issues.

  • The majority of British adults say Jeremy Corbyn (54%) and David Cameron (56%) have acted dishonestly over Brexit – the two highest of all individuals tested.
  • Four in ten 2016 Remain voters think Jeremy Corbyn has acted dishonestly (40%), as do three in ten (30%) of 2017 Labour voters.
  • By a ratio of about two to one, the British public agree that the Supreme Court was right to rule that Boris Johnson’s prorogation of parliament was unlawful (50% agree vs 29% disagree).
  • Three in five of the British public agree that Parliament has had plenty of time to debate Brexit and we should just get on with leaving the EU (60%), including one third (35%) of 2016 Remain voters.
  • Two in five 2016 Remain voters (39%) and nine in ten 2016 Leave voters (88%) agree that whether or not they voted for Brexit, the 2016 Referendum should be respected, also including four in ten of those intending to vote Labour at the next election (38%).
  • Two in five British adults say the UK should stay in the EU (37%), compared to half who say the UK should leave with or without a deal by 31st October 2019 (49%).
  • One in five UK adults think the UK will leave the EU without a deal by 31st October 2019 (21%).
  • Three in five British adults agree Parliament should reconvene immediately in light of the ruling that the prorogation of parliament was unlawful (61%).
  • Half of British adults agree they have a good understanding of The Brexit Party (52%) and the Liberal Democrat’s Brexit Policy (51%) compared to two in five for the Conservatives (41%) and only three in ten for Labour’s (29%).
  • Once again the country’s polarised state is pronounced, as half of 2016 Leave voters (54%) would feel betrayed by the UK remaining in the EU, whereas half of 2016 Remain voters (51%) would feel pleased at this.
  • Four in ten (38%) 2016 Leave voters believe Boris Johnson bears no responsibility for the current Brexit deadlock.
  • The country remains polarised over today’s Supreme Court ruling, with half of 2016 Leave voters (47%) feeling frustrated with its decision whilst half of 2016 Remain voters (52%) feel pleased.
