Voters back May’s new talks with EU… but only one in three think she will win a compromise, with a No Deal the most likely outcome

– Many voters believe it will be a mission impossible, even if the Prime Minister digs in her heels until March 29 – the day the UK is due to cut ties with Brussels
– And most – including a large number of Tories – believe the reason she toughened up her stance on Brexit was to appease the hard-line Tory Brexiteers
– The Survation poll was carried out after the Commons voted to back a new attempt by the Prime Minister to re-open Brexit negotiations

You’ve LOST respect! Support for politicians PLUMMETS as chaos reigns – SHOCK EXPRESS POLL

Labour must pursue a better Brexit deal, not a second referendum

But Labour started the last election campaign 24 percentage points behind the Tories in the polls, and ended two points behind six weeks later. Today, the polling average has Labour slightly ahead. Conservatives fear that a Corbyn-led administration would not be like a “normal” Labour government, and would upend an economic consensus established by Margaret Thatcher. And they would be right.

The media will now attempt to shift the narrative, claiming that it is Labour under pressure. This is absurd.

Labour friends. Especially those calling for a second referendum. You will notice we’ve gone around five points back in the polls behind the worst PM ever! That is since the leadership have been openly flirting with a second referendum. Put two and two together. Think about it.
