60% of Britons see Brexit as a failure, 51% want to rejoin EU: poll
A poll by YouGov shows that around 70% of people believe that the UK government is handling Brexit badly.
A YouGov poll conducted last week demonstrates that 63% believe Brexit to be more of a failure than a success and 51% would vote to rejoin the EU. Only 32% would stick with the decision to remain out of the bloc.
12% said Brexit was a success and 18% stated it was neither a success nor a failure.
YouGov poll further showed that around 70% believe that the UK government is handling Brexit badly.
Former Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said on Newsnight recently that the UK had not “benefitted from Brexit economically” and that it deterred businesses from investing in the country.
However, the YouGov poll shows that some Leave voters have changed their opinion since 2016, as 18% of them say they would opt to return to the EU, while 73% argue that they would still vote to leave the EU.
As of now, 57% of Britons say that the country was wrong to go for Brexit, which YouPoll claims is the highest figure recorded to date. Meanwhile, 32% think it was the right decision.
Ever since Britain left the European Union, customs delays and bureaucratic setbacks have taken a toll on British firms, who have been moving business over to Europe.
Earlier this year, business investment within the UK maintained at about 1% above its level during the June 2016 vote for Brexit. Over the same period, business investment soared 25% in France, 21% in the US, and 7% in Germany, per data from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.
Just two days ago, the United Kingdom finalized its accession into a major Indo-Pacific trade bloc as the former EU member looks to expand its business relations beyond its European borders.
