    The times they are a changing..

    EXCLUSIVE: Most Britons think Brexit WAS the right thing to do after EU vaccine shambles and a fifth think it has enabled UK to fight Covid more effectively
    • A survey by Redfield and Wilton found 42 per cent believe Leave was right call
    • It is the same 4 per cent margin that swung the referendum result five years ago
    • It came as reeling EU leaders appeared to target the UK with an export ban

    Oh no they are not still 4% majority! Some even saw benefits.

    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

          It's falling. It was 51.9% a few years ago.

            Nope that was a different question and if you do the math its 52.5% ignoring the dont knows.

            What is it with these reamainers that they cant understand simple questions or maths?

              Anyway, humour aside, if the abstainers are considered to be the equivalent of don't knows, then back in 2016, the result was that 37.5% thought it a good idea, and 34.7% thought it not. So perhaps the poll indicates that the against has really changed, but now more don't knows think it was a good idea.

              It would be interested to see how the figures evolved from when campaigning began to now.

                fifth think it has enabled UK to fight Covid more effectively
                Whilst I would agree our vaccine roll out has gone well, and the EU's is a shambles in comparison, I wouldn't go anywhere near trying to claim the UK has fought Covid effectively. And anyone who does is either lying, or a fool.

                As for the poll, all it really shows is that the UK is as divided now as it was in 2016. Very few, if any, remainers have changed their minds due to the shambles surrounding brexit and let's face it, brexiters will never change their mind because of their inherent bias.

                  Nope for some reason the UK made a complete horlicks of Covid we transferred the vulnerable between the hospital and care homes until we were sure we had infected everyone. We failed to lock down early but strangely we didn't have a health service overload like Italy and Greece etc.



                  Remainers Their decision to want to remain in a crumbling EU is because of the mess caused by Brexit? OK as you wish.

                  Brexiters have followed their decision to leave and others have joined them because brexit has been made more difficult by the EU.

                  Both have their reasons for decisions Brexiteers try to avoid calling you quislings and Lord Haw Haws yet you love to call us racists and xenophobes.

                  Just because you don't agree with our reasons doesn't mean we are biased.

                    But have others joined you? Excluding the don't knows, the difference is still 4% based on what you posted, which suggests the Uk is as divided now as it was in 2016.

                    Only you brexiters are seeing the EU crumbling, and that's just your wishful thinking. I agree they have made an absolute balls-up of the vaccine contracts and roll out, but despite this they still, as we debate, still have a less worse covid death rate compared to the UK. So, if you're only basing the EU 'crumbling' based on Covid, then the UK is worse off

                    Call me Lord Haw Haw if you like, it means nothing to no one. However, everyone can spot and understand what a racist and a xenophobe is
