Frustration lingers over Brexit process
This time in 2016, the country was digesting the result of the EU Referendum: yes to Brexit. We asked, 4 years on, how you now feel about the result.
Whilst the vast majority of respondents (93%) to this Speedy Poll would vote in the same way as they did on 23 June 2020, there is a small minority (7%) that have changed their position. This theoretical change of vote has switched in both directions. Two respondents told us, with one commenting:
“I voted remain but now I’m glad that we’re leaving.”
However, the other said:
“I voted leave, but now feel we were conned and having seen the hash this government has made of Covid-19… no confidence left in this Uk government!”
Amongst those who took part in this Speedy Poll, and with the benefit of 4 years of hindsight, the majority (54%) think that yes to Brexit was a good thing.
This question continues however to polarise as just 1% of respondents are now not sure.
One participant told us:
“I am more convinced that leaving the EU is the right move for the UK.”
with another though saying:
“Brexit was a bad idea then and is a terrible fact now.”
Still not over
The fact that the Brexit process has still not been fully completed is a bone of contention for quite a few of us:
“We need to hurry up and fully end the relationship with the EU.”
with another adding:
“Politicians should keep their promises; thanks to Cameron’s cowardly actions in jumping ship, because he lost, and May’s weakness, we have wasted 4 years.”
