New Brexit survey reveals Mid Sussex residents' views

Jose Manuel Barroso with David Cameron in 2014 More

The unprecedented survey, which included 17,000 responses in Scotland, shows that a significant majority want the United Kingdom to stay in the European single market and believe Britain will be economically worse off outside the EU.

And while Remain campaigners are calling for another referendum to be held on the final deal between the United Kingdom and the European Union, this has been ruled out by both the Conservative and Labour leaderships.

However, regardless of which way they voted, our readers agree that they are unhappy with how the negotiations are going.

"We need to stop with the nonsense of whether we should stay or leave - we voted to leave and it's going to happen".

A huge majority of people who took part in an online survey said they would vote the same now in the Brexit Referendum.

Three-fifths of Mid Sussex Times readers polled think we would be better off economically in Europe - and a majority want to stick with the Single Market. Among Leave voters, just 8% think Britain is better off economically in Europe, while almost a quarter of these voters (23%) think we should continue to be part of the Single Market.

Among Remain voters, 87 per cent say Britain is better off economically inside Europe and 86 per cent say we should continue to be part of the Single Market.

"We do not intend to rip up the rulebook after Brexit", he said.

GOP Rep. Lamborn Does Not Qualify for Primary Ballot, State Court Rules
El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn , who ran unsuccessfully for Senate in 2016, submitted petitions for the primary. The Colorado Supreme Court's ruling reversed the district court decision, saying intent does not equal a valid residency.

"The UK government must listen and change course before they really take us to the cliff edge".

Glen dismissed talk of a "race to the bottom", a move that would make it much harder for Britain to secure access to the EU's financial market.

"Theresa May must stop pandering to the extreme Tory Brexiteers, whose agenda will do untold damage to the economy and jobs for many years to come". "History has always shown that when we stay together we can sort out problems", he said. "Nothing else makes sense".

Among those who said they voted Leave, 44% are unhappy with the status of negotiations compared to 35% who were happy.

Responding to the survey, Scottish Labour Brexit spokesman Neil Findlay MSP said: "The Tories handling of Brexit has been nothing short of shambolic". Northern Ireland was second at 60 per cent.

Anna Turley, Redcar MP, said: "As we move towards seeing the reality of what Theresa May's Brexit deal looks like, it is not surprising that people in the North-East are anxious about the impact on their jobs and the money in their pockets". The EU is not flawless but it was the best idea we had.

Regional differences on Brexit in other parts of the United Kingdom were also underlined in the survey. The transition agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union last month allows financial firms to move ahead and plan their future confidently. But Leave supporters say retaining current arrangements would amount to a betrayal of the Brexit vote.
