Snap Poll: Vast Majority Want Parliament to Get On With Brexit

A ComRes poll for the Telegraph asked people their view on the statement “Parliament has had plenty of time to debate Brexit and we should just get on with leaving the EU”. 60% just want parliament to get on with it…

47% think there should be a General Election as soon as possible after the 31st October 2019, 41% think it should be before. Suspect now it will be after…

Public Supports Proroguing Parliament

A majority (54%) of the public agree that Boris Johnson needs to deliver Brexit by any means, even if that meant suspending Parliament, according to the latest ComRes poll for The Telegraph. Including ‘don’t knows’ there is still a clear 44% in favour to 37% against, this is backed up by another question that finds 40% of people who think Boris is more in tune with the public than Parliament. Only 25% agree that Parliament is more in tune with the public than Boris…

Naturally Remoaners are hitting the roof over the fact ‘don’t knows’ have been excluded from the headline, and that the poll used the word “Boris”. Funnily enough Guido can’t remember them making such a fuss at the endless series of highly loaded “Final Say” polling questions pumped out by the People’s Vote campaign…

Rory Stewart Will Destroy the Conservative Party

On the day that he launches his leadership campaign we learn that a Conservative Party led by Rory Stewart would be destroyed, he is an existential threat to the Tories being an electoral force and the party under his leadership would be reduced to 51 seats – less than the Liberal Democrats would win. According to pollsters ComRes, only one leadership candidate  will win a majority, Boris Johnson. Boris will smash Corbyn and win the Tories a 140 seat majority…

New Poll Shows That Everyone Is Losing

A new ComRes poll for the Telegraph has revealed that support for both major parties has collapsed down to Cameron/Miliband levels, at 32% apiece, a whole ten points below what the Tories achieved in the General Election. It’s not just bad news for the Tories and Labour, the Lib Dems have slipped down to fifth place, polling behind both Gerard Batten’s UKIP and Chuka Umunna’s ‘Change UK’. There aren’t any winners here…

The same poll shows that now as many people now see revoking Article 50 entirely on Friday (40%) as ‘an acceptable Brexit outcome’ as back leaving with No Deal (38%). A second referendum, with options rigged between May’s deal and Remaining also attracts 38%. Wednesday’s likely outcome of a long delay only attracts the support of 34% of the electorate. There is no majority for any option…

Guido is coming round to a penalty shoot out solution…

Two Thirds of Brits Want Low Tax Pro-Business Economy

ComRes has found that the UK is split almost down the middle in almost every aspect of Brexit, apart from what happens next. The polling organisation has found that two thirds of voters say that once the Brexit process is complete,

“the UK should try to become the lowest tax, business-friendliest country in Europe, focused on building strong international trade links.”

Amazingly this statement is supported by all age groups and all political affiliations, including 54% of Labour Party supporters. The low tax, free trading, ‘alternate economic model’ Brexit Britain the media scoffs at is actually incredibly popular…

ComRes on MPs’ Favourite News Sources: Radio 4, Times, Guido, Brilllo, Quentin

Pollsters ComRes have asked 151 MPs for their favourite news sources. Radio 4 is the most popular daily news source which will please the Today Programme, The Times with its strong comment section is the most popular online newspaper, The Standard is the most popular dead tree news source – well it is free. Guido by far the most popular political site, Brillo the most popular interview and the acerbic Quentin Letts the most popular hack.

The questions were unprompted, meaning MPs had to name their favourites. The results in our category were stunning, confirming our continuing dominance of digital political news for the people who actually run the country.

We never forget that it is our readers who our are best sources. You make this site and… you’re either in front of Guido, or behind…

ComRes Insists BBC Audience Wasn’t Biased

Andrew Hawkins from ComRes insists his BBC audience last night was “scrupulously put together, selected and verified” and that right-leaning audience members are just not as vocal as lefties. Certainly true that Labour rabble’s are more likely to scream and boo, just ask Laura K…

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
