MORE people in the UK favour a second referendum on European Union membership than oppose another vote, a new poll suggests.
A total of 47% of respondents favour having a final say on Brexit once the terms of withdrawal are known, while 34% are against reopening the question, according to the ICM poll for the Guardian.
Excluding the 19% who do not have a view, it gives a 16-point lead in favour of a second referendum.
A leading Brexiteer has warned Theresa May that if she delivers “Brexit in name only” with a status quo transition period the Conservatives will lose the next election.
Jacob Rees-Mogg also told the Prime Minister: “The leader is important, the party is more important”.
His intervention comes after David Davis was forced to play down Cabinet rifts over Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
The Brexit Secretary insisted there was “no difference” between himself, Chancellor Philip Hammond and the PM on the Brexit outcome they were seeking.
But Mr Hammond’s remark on Thursday that the UK’s trade relations with the EU would change only “very modestly” after Brexit sparked anger among Tory Eurosceptics and earned him a rebuke from Downing Street.
