Almost nine out of 10 Britons say MPs are “out of touch” and that they “ignore the wishes of voters”.

The poll of 2,011 adults, conducted by ComRes for The Telegraph, found that voters are fed up with their MPs.

It showed that 88% of respondents feel Parliament is "out of touch" with the British public, and that 89% feel MPs "ignore the wishes of voters and push their own agendas" on Brexit.

The survey also found that almost half of the British public think prime minister Boris Johnson should suspend Parliament to push through Brexit.

It revealed that 44% agree that Mr Johnson “needs to deliver Brexit by any means, including suspending Parliament if necessary, in order to prevent MPs from stopping it".

However, a similar percentage, 37%, disagreed with the statement.

And the poll found that 51% of respondents agree that "Brexit should be halted if problems over the Northern Ireland border threaten to split the Union".

In addition, 77% of respondents agree the Queen should "remain above politics and refuse to get involved in Brexit".

Andrew Hawkins, chairman of ComRes, said: "With the largest Tory lead over Labour from ComRes this year, this poll is confirmation that the Boris Bounce is real and shows no sign of disappearing despite the Parliamentary break.

"Boris's support has been boosted by him outperforming expectations, including among a third of Labour and Lib Dem voters.

"It will not be lost on Jeremy Corbyn as he contemplates attempting to call a vote of no confidence that Boris could win an election with barely a third of the vote because support is so fragmented across all the parties.

"If Boris can deliver Brexit, without too much collateral damage to the economy, he stands to win big.

"He is within touching distance of an overall majority even without the support of the one in five 2017 Tory voters who are still lending their support to the Brexit Party.

"If he can woo them back by delivering on his promise to leave the EU, apparently even if it means suspending Parliament, then he could well be on track to win a working majority.”
