Sevenoaks Brexitometer – 27 October 2018

The Brexitometer was out on Sevenoaks High Street on Saturday to ask the opinion of Sevenoaks shoppers. Stormy weather perhaps mirroring UK-EU negotiations. The results provided some pretty stark numbers:

  • Less than 5% of respondents thought Brexit promises would be delivered.
  • Less than 6% of respondents thought Brexit was going well
  • Only 16% of respondents would be happy with No Deal Brexit
  • Over 70% of respondents were in favour of a People’s Vote on the final deal.
