British Fed Up With Brexit, the Majority Wants to Stay in EU
British Fed Up With Brexit, the Majority Wants to Stay in EU. In Britain, enthusiasm for leaving the European Union seems to be quickly disappearing.
Just over a third of the British (35 percent) are still behind Brexit, 57 percent want to stay in the EU, business website Business Insider reports based on a survey by European Social Survey.
In 2018, exactly half of the British wanted to remain in the EU. No explanation for the increase is given.
Business Insider does point out, however, that the British economy must take a severe blow due to the corona crisis, which has hit harder in the country than in many other European countries.
Four years ago, a British referendum narrowly fell in favour of Brexit. Since January 31, the United Kingdom has officially ceased to be part of the European Union.
There is a transitional period until the end of this year, during which negotiations will take place on the ‘divorce conditions’ and the future relationship.
The chance that the British will again become part of the EU is not very big.
The Johnson administration firmly insists that the transition period will not be extended, regardless of whether agreements are on the table or not. Nor returns a policy objective for the opposition Labor party.
