With just one day to go until Britain finally leaves the EU, it seems most Remainers still have not accepted Brexit.

According to a YouGov survey, nearly one in five (19%) of those who support remaining in the EU do not believe Brits really wanted to leave the EU when they voted in 2016.

While this figure is a drop from the 32% who answered that way in November 2016, the results nevertheless paint a stark picture into the various stages of grief that Remain supporters still inhabit.

Some 16% of respondents said they still felt angry about the result, while a quarter are in the “depression” stage.

The survey also shows that, even with Brexit certain to happen on Friday, 3% still believe it can be averted if they put their case to the public.

Overall, 30% of the 2,050 adults surveyed say they now accept that Brexit will happen – an increase of 10% from 2016.

Britain will leave the EU at 11pm on 31 January after the European Parliament voted overwhelmingly to back Boris Johnson's Brexit deal on Wednesday.

MEPs, sitting in Brussels, voted by 621 to 49 in favour of the Withdrawal Agreement, paving the way for Britain to leave on Friday with a deal in place.

The vote in Brussels follows the completion last week of the passage of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill through the British Parliament at Westminster.

The agreement settles the terms of Britain's departure, including future citizens' rights, the arrangements on the Northern Ireland border and the UK's divorce settlement.

It also allows for an 11-month transition period, during which the UK will continue to follow EU rules while talks take place on a free trade agreement.

Mr Johnson has said he wants a comprehensive deal – covering all aspects of Britain's future relationship with the EU, including security – by the end of the year.

He has been adamant that he will not contemplate any extension of the transition period beyond the end of 2020.

However, senior EU figures have repeatedly warned that reaching such a wide-ranging agreement will not be possible within such a tight timetable.
