Over 50% Of UK Citizens Favor Brexit Delay Opening Door For New Referendum - Poll
MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 10th February, 2019) Over 50 percent of UK citizens want the country's withdrawal from the European Union to be delayed, a poll, which Birmingham-based polling agency BMG Research carried out for UK newspaper Independent, revealed on Sunday.
Since the UK Parliament is set to debate a Brexit motion on February 14, 53 percent of respondents believe that May will fail to get her plan passed, and only 22 percent feel that she will succeed to do so.
The United Kingdom is set to leave the European Union in late March. The withdrawal deal, which the two sides have reached, has not yet been approved by UK lawmakers, with the Irish border backstop being the stumbling block. Both London and Brussels are therefore concerned over the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.
