New Brexit survey reveals Eastbourne residents' views

A survey of around 7,000 readers of North-East news websites from publishers Newsquest, Johnston Press and Trinity Mirror found seven per cent of leave voters would vote differently if a new referendum was held, compared with five per cent of remain voters.

There was also a strong message to Prime Minister Theresa May with a significant number saying they weren't happy with the Brexit talks so far as the Government seeks to extricate the country from Europe and the Single Market.

Among those who said they voted Leave, 40 per cent are unhappy with the status of negotiations compared to 36 per cent who were happy.

More than half of leave voters said the were unhappy with the negotiations, whilst just six per cent of remain voters said they were pleased.

The unprecedented survey, which included 17,000 responses in Scotland, shows that a significant majority want the United Kingdom to stay in the European single market and believe Britain will be economically worse off outside the EU.

And 58 per cent said Britain should continue to be part of the single European market. The choice was either you stay in Europe, which is not flawless, or you go out into something nobody has any idea how it will work.

In an interview with The Guardian, Klopp said that Brexit "still makes no sense", and he added that there "was not one time in history where division creates success".


"My constituents voted to Leave by nearly 70:30 and nothing I have seen or heard suggests that's changed - indeed, on Friday I was talking to constituents who raised their anger with the House of Lords insisting we remain inside the Customs Union".

"I voted to remain and I stick by that".

"It is clear that the majority of voters in Northern Ireland oppose a hard border and voters across Britain do not buy into the bargain basement Brexit that the Tories are trying to sell them. I think a lot of people got swept up in the "Yeah Britain" but now everything has settled down people are realising it might not be good".

"Glen's notion that the European Union is softening is simply wrong: the European Union can't give the United Kingdom a "sweetheart" deal in services while allowing it to control free movement of labour, as many other European Union countries will then line up to demand the same thing".

Edinburgh South MP Ian Murray, the co-chair of the Scottish Labour for the Single Market campaign, said the findings were "hugely significant" and should serve as a "wake-up call to Scottish Labour and the United Kingdom leadership". More than two-thirds of those who voted Remain (67 per cent) said they were unhappy, compared to 10 per cent who said they were happy.

"We do not intend to rip up the rulebook after Brexit", Glen told a conference in the Guildhall, in the heart of London's financial district.
