More people than ever think we were wrong to vote for Brexit

More people than ever think Britain was wrong to vote to leave the EU, according to a poll.

YouGov’s Referendum Tracker shows that the number of people who think Britain was wrong to vote for Brexit has exceeded the number who think it was right by the largest number of points yet.

The tracker has been comparing the proportion of people who think the decision was right or wrong since August 2016.


The latest results, from October 10-11, put the proportion who think the decision was wrong at 47% compared to 42% who think it was right.

Election analyst Mike Smithson, who runs political blog Politicalbetting.com, tweeted: “Wrong to Leave EU takes its biggest lead yet, 5 points, in YouGov’s Referendum tracker. Wrong 47%. Right 42%.”

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has reportedly said the Brexit process will take “longer than we initially thought”, blaming delays on Britain’s failure to settle its financial obligations.

Mr Juncker was speaking after the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, said talks on issues including the “divorce bill” had not made sufficient progress for him to be able to recommend moving on to the second phase of negotiations, covering trade.
