‘Brexit by any means’ supported by the majority of Britons: ComRes poll

A majority
of Britons believe Prime Minister Boris Johnson must take Britain out of the
European Union “by any means”, even if that involves suspending parliament, an
opinion poll conducted for the Daily Telegraph said on Monday.

Johnson has
promised to lead Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31 regardless of whether he
manages to secure an exit deal with Brussels, despite many in parliament being
opposed to leaving without a deal.

A ComRes
opinion poll showed 54% of respondents said they agreed with the statement:
“Boris (Johnson) needs to deliver Brexit by any means, including suspending
parliament if necessary, in order to prevent MPs (Members of Parliament) from
stopping it.”

Johnson is
seeking a deal with the EU but has not ruled out suspending parliament to
prevent lawmakers’ attempts to block a no-deal exit.

The poll
showed 46% disagreed with the statement. The result was based on the answers of
1,645 respondents, after those who said they did not know their preference had
been excluded.

The same
survey found support for the Conservative Party had risen by 6 percentage
points to 31%, compared with 27% who said they would back the opposition Labour
Party. That result was based on 1,783 responses.

That finding is largely in line with other polls showing an increase in support for the Conservatives since Johnson took over from Theresa May, who formally quit last month having failed to deliver Brexit on schedule.
