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.

One month ago, the major pro-Europe organisations came together to launch the single combined campaign, “People’s Vote”, i.e. for the British people to have a vote on the final Brexit deal to be proposed by the Government. It is important to recognise that such a vote is not the organisations’ final objective, but rather the essential mechanism through which the present will of the British people will be expressed.
