In Swanley 60% say YES they would like a final say.

120 Swanley people took part in the SSTIE Brexitometer survey at Swanley  Market on the 6th June.

The main conclusions are :

  1. The majority* (67%) think that Brexit will be better for them than staying in the UK on a range of issues : See Brexitometer photo
  2. 60% would like a final say.

The first conclusion is in line with the fact that 70% voted Leave in the referendum in Swanley but the second is at variance with this and makes one wonder whether some doubt is entering into the heads of some leave voters.
