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.
Most people said the blame would lie with the MPs who opposed Theresa May’s Brexit deal because they wanted to stop Brexit, however – a total of 83 per cent.
The EU was second with 80 per cent, while 75 per cent thought Jeremy Corbyn would be responsible and 69 per cent said it would be Theresa May’s fault.
With the Labour party having come out in favour of a second referendum on Brexit, the chances of this becoming a reality have increased in the eyes of voters – up from 12 per cent to 19 per cent, according to YouGov.
