Hard Brexiteers will be getting the blame if Brexit fails to happen, according to a new YouGov poll.

They posed the question: ‘Who would Leave voters blame if Brexit didn’t happen?’, and ‘MPs who opposed Theresa May’s Brexit deal because they wanted a ‘harder’ Brexit’ won 63 per cent of the vote.

More than a quarter (29 per cent) of respondents said those MPs would bear “a lot” of responsibility for Britain ending up staying in the EU, while a further 34 per cent said they would bear “some” responsibility – a total of more than six in 10.

MPs who held out for no-deal were viewed almost as harshly, with 59 per cent of the vote.
