While parliament debates the Governments withdrawal agreement, Remain groups from across the country today took their Brexitometer results to a protest in Westminster to showcase the growing public shift towards Remain.
SSTIE have been conducting Brexitometer opinion-polls in towns across West Kent since spring 2018. During this time we have seen a growing shift in public opinion, not just against the specific withdrawal plans and arrangements, but also against the overall process of Brexit.

- 55% of them call for No Brexit
- 16.5% support the Government’s deal
- 28.5% would prefer No Deal
