Brexit: Majority now want to remain in EU, poll finds

A majority of voters now want the UK to remain in the EU, a poll has suggested, according to Independent.

Remaining is now backed by an extremely slim majority of 51 per cent, versus 49 per cent who wish to leave the EU.

This suggests a small number of voters have changed their views since the UK voted to leave the EU by a margin of 52-48 on 23 June.

The research, conducted by BMG Research, found the main swell of support came from people who did not vote in the referendum over the summer. Of those who didn't vote in June, 46 per cent said they now would in order to back EU membership, while 27 per cent said they would in order to vote to leave.

Following the referendum result, reports emerged of people who claimed to regret casting their ballot for Brexit, who came to be known as 'Bregret' voters.

The news follows a landmark judgment today in the High Court that the Government cannot trigger Article 50 without consulting parliament first.
