The table shows the combined results of SSTIE’s polling in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Swanley in the last 4 weeks.

The principal message to take from this is very encouraging for Remain in that across West Kent there is an 11% rise in support for Remain largely coming from those who declared that they didn’t vote in 2016.
In Swanley on Saturday it was dry and not cold. It was not very busy but we still had 166 people put stickers on the Brexitometer. As on previous visits Swanley voters are mostly Leavers, the numbers are in the table.
And the picture is that there would be very little change if we get another referendum. Of the 12 people who said that they did not vote in the 2016 referendum, 6 would vote leave, 3 would vote to remain and 3 would not vote next time either.

We had another very interesting day’s campaigning on Saturday 20th September in Sevenoaks where the focus of the Brexitometer was “How would you vote now?” .

These are politically turbulent times – nobody knows where we are going and people are both very concerned and aghast at the chaos that Mr Johnson and his cohort seem to be unleashing on the country.
Brexit is Breaking Britain and we need to for a way to fix it. So, on Saturday we asked shoppers in Sevenoaks Town whether they thought we needed to go ahead with No Deal, with May’s Deal, with Johnson’s Deal or whether we should Remain in Europe (which is of course the Deal that we have now).

The Office of Budget Responsibility has estimated* that the cost of a No Deal Brexit would be £30 billion.

For the first time we had two posters in operation on our Brexitometer : a moodometer and a survey of opinion on What Price Brexit? See Photos below.

Almost 80% of Sevenoaks shoppers told us they wanted No Brexit
In Sevenoaks on Saturday, we canvassed people for their views on whether the UK should leave the EU with No Deal or should not leave the EU at all. There was the opportunity to suggest something else.
Continue reading “Nearly 80% say they do not want Brexit”
On Saturday morning we asked shoppers in Tonbridge whether they wanted a Final Say on Brexit and 435 people put a sticker on the board:
- 291 want a Final Say vote
- 121 do not want a Final Say vote
- 23 people did not know
Of the people who knew what they wanted, over 70% wanted a Final Say vote.
At least three former local councillors had their say – one Tory, one Labour and one LibDem – and they all wanted a Final Say. Tom Tugendhat, the Tonbridge and Malling MP was out with a photographer and told one of our group that he would return and have his photo taken with us – sadly he had not done so when we packed up at one o’clock.
Many said they were fed up by the whole rigmarole, but also a number who wanted a proper vote, feeling that the first was based entirely on lies
The main argument that we heard against a Final Say was that we have already voted and it would be undemocratic to have another vote.
There is a very negative view, by both those saying Yes and those saying NO, of the Government, the Labour leadership, and of politicians generally for the way in which this is all being dealt with.
SSTIE Brexitometer evidence shows that The demand for a People’s Vote is growing
Tonbridge 8th Dec 2018
SSTIE were aided on Saturday 8th December by some Tonbridge people from other groups and most encouragingly by several new people joining us at our Brexitometer. This bustle of people became a magnet for many passers by and drew many into discussions with us.
The results of our polling speak for themselves with 78% in favour of a People’s Vote and 73% in favour of No Brexit. These results echo what SSTIE has uncovered in the past fortnight in Swanley and Sevenoaks.
