Public sees Labour as more anti-Brexit than Change UK

ChangeUK's anti-Brexit message has not reached many people

A YouGov poll has found that more of the public see Labour as anti-Brexit than the Change UK party.

Change UK is a new group formed mainly of members of parliament who left the Labour Party because they felt it was not doing enough to stop Brexit.

Despite being anti-Brexit being the party’s main issue, just 38% of the public polled said the party was anti-Brexit while 42% said Labour was anti-Brexit.

About the same proportion of the public, 13%, said each party was pro-Brexit.

The Scottish National Party is seen as the most anti-Brexit party, followed by the Liberal Democrats and then the Greens.

The poll also revealed that, of those likely to vote for Labour in the European elections: 45% believe the party is anti-Brexit, 27% think it is neither and 14% said it was pro-Brexit.

Liberal Democrat and Change UK voters are far more likely to believe the party they’re voting for is anti-Brexit.

    It’s a good job Labour has a good socialist leader who sees through the pro-EU Blairite lies and propaganda.

    That’s maybe because they’re a new party and many people just don’t know (44%). 25% don’t know about Labour – but that’s probably because of Corbyn’s fudge and waffle.

    Come on, Sacold. Nearly every Brexiter is a hard right winger. You probably are too.

    Labour Leave is the campaigning Labour Brexit organisation. There are many working-class Labour supporters who are passionately pro-Brexit. We can never implement real socialist reform whilst members of the EU due to the neoliberal maket-based rules of the Single Market and Customs Union.
