Brits want referendum vote to be respected and Brexit done and dusted by October 31, poll reveals
MOST Brits want the EU referendum vote to be RESPECTED and Brexit done and dusted by October 31, a poll has revealed.
Fifty four per cent of voters want us to honour the 2016 vote and leave the bloc while just 25 per cent disagree.
SHOW SOME RESPECT
The remaining 21 per cent of voters were unsure whether we should Leave or Remain, the Telegraph reports.
Bitter Remainers have been calling for Boris Johnson to beg Brussels for a Brexit extension but the PM said he would rather be “dead in a ditch” than do so.
It appears that Brits are backing the PM and 49 per cent said they want us out of the EU by the Halloween deadline.
Only 29 per cent of voters appear keen on a further delay to the will of the people while 22 per cent were unsure either way.
Boris twice called for a snap election in the Commons and was twice defeated by Labour MPs and Tory rebels.
The PM blasted Jeremy Corbyn as a “preposterous coward” after he blocked the bid this week.
Voters were unimpressed with Corbyn’s move with 40 per cent believing the Labour boss was wrong to oppose Bo-Jo’s election call.
While 30 per cent did not want an election and the remaining 30 did not know.
The poll also found that nearly half of Brits would rather leave the EU with No Deal than have Corbyn at No 10.
While 22 per cent disagreed that was a good option.
MR NIGE GUY
The poll comes after Boris was handed a boost by Nigel Farage who spelt out his price for an election deal with the Tories – to give his Brexit Party a free run in 80 to 90 parliamentary seats.
In exchange, the anti-EU party chief has told No10 he would not to field any candidates against sitting Tory MPs and in the Conservatives’ target seats.
The landmark offer has been relayed to Boris Johnson by senior Tory figures after discreet conversations with Mr Farage opened up, The Sun has been told.
The seats that Mr Farage wants Mr Johnson to abandon are ones where the Brexit Party or his old outfit UKIP have come second to Labour.
They are spread across south Wales, the Midlands and the North East.
The veteran MEP believes he can win “40 to 50” of them, giving him a major foothold in the Commons for the first time.
Mr Farage’s second demand for a deal is for the Tory boss to abandon the current Withdrawal Agreement, and replace it with a two year standstill agreement with Brussels while a future trade deal is being negotiated.
