Poll: Britons reject Johnson’s exit plan without agreement

The Britons have decisively rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s exit plan from the European Union without an agreement, undermining his claim that he has been authorized to take the dramatic step.

The poll showed that only 34 percent of voters want the prime minister Johnson’s exit plan from the EU without a deal on October 31 if necessary – while 49 percent urge him to delay or cancel the entire EU exit or hold a new referendum.

The poll by BMG Research also reveals that the public is vague about Johnson’s chances of negotiating a new deal with the EU, with only 19 percent believing he will.

The British voters also prefer to give MPs a final vote on the outcome of Brexit – where they are excluded from the process, as the government intends – by 42 percent to 39 percent.

Guto Bebb, a conservative lawmaker who is fighting against leaving without an agreement, took advantage of the results, saying: “There is no mandate and no Brexit mandate without a deal. Boris Johnson’s promised in 2016 a better deal than the current deal with the EU. Why can’t he fulfill it?” With this promise rather than the disaster of not reaching an agreement?

Jo Swenson, leader of the Liberal Party, said: “The possibility of Brexit without an agreement, Johnson’s exit plan must be eliminated. Not only does it have public support, as the poll shows, it will be an incredibly irresponsible decision if adopted by any government, especially if it would To result in loss of jobs, damage to our economy and strike our public services”.
