MOST THINK PM’S DEAL BAD FOR UK
ALMOST two-thirds of voters (62%) think it would be a bad thing for the UK to leave the EU under the terms secured by Theresa May, according to a poll.
Four days before MPs pass judgement on the Prime Minister’s Withdrawal Agreement in a Commons vote on December 11, just 25% of those questioned by pollsters Ipsos Mori said Mrs May’s deal was a good thing.
The poll for the Evening Standard showed no consensus over what path the government should take if the vote is lost on Tuesday.
Among those questioned, 20% would support a second referendum pitting Leave against Remain, the same proportion said the UK should quit the EU with no deal, and 10% wanted a referendum on Mrs May’s deal alone.
