Chequers and Remain Crushed in New Poll

A new poll by BMG Research for Huffington Post has found that just 16% of Brits favour remaining in the EU when presented with all the options. Even among those who voted Remain in 2016, just 32% support remaining today.

A Canada-style deal was the most popular of all the options with 22% of the country supporting it, ahead of No Deal in second place. Chequers was as unpopular as the Norway option, with both languishing on 11%.

After ERG Vice Chair Mark Francois confirmed that the ERG intended to vote against Chequers no matter what, this is a further sign that a pivot to a Canada-style deal may be May’s most politically viable option. Her comments today that a Canada-style deal would be worse than no deal will not be going down well with her backbenchers…

UPDATE: With the don’t know’s excluded, it becomes even more clear that most people want a clean break.

Quote of the Day

Emmanuel Macron comes over all euro-sceptic…

“We ended the day on what we can call a failure. It’s a very bad image we are giving of the Council and Europe, no one can be satisfied with what happened over so many hours. Our credibility is profoundly tainted with these meetings that are too long and lead to nothing, we give an image of Europe that isn’t serious. We cannot hold talks with world leaders, in an ever more violent world, and be a club that meets at 28 without ever deciding anything.”
