May's Brexit deal rejected: what now?

January 16, 2019

Theresa May's Brexit deal was rejected by MPs last night, and in no uncertain terms.

The answer to that question is multi-faceted and, currently, unknown. More will become clear after today's vote of no confidence result comes in, but looking more long term, what does the British public think the consequence for Brexit will be? As a new survey by YouGov shows, a plurality (35 percent) think the UK is now staring down the barrel of a no deal Brexit. Fittingly, the second most common response was 'don't know' while the third was the daunting prospect of yet another referendum.
