Since Theresa May’s Brexit deal was voted down by MPs on 15th January, tens of thousands of 38 Degrees members have come together to share our thoughts when it comes to what’s happened with Brexit – and what should happen next.
38 Degrees is made of millions of people from all across the UK, who have a range of different opinions on Brexit. Unsurprisingly, we don’t agree on everything. Here are some of the key results from the survey:
Though campaigning for a second referendum was the most popular first choice, there wasn’t a majority, and many people consider it the worst option.
So what does this mean? The 38 Degrees staff team will continue to look out for opportunities to influence Brexit – to make sure that the things we all care about, like our environmental regulations, the future of our immigration system, and our food are protected after Brexit.
You can see more detail of the results below:
How are you feeling about Brexit?
MPs voted down the government’s deal that sets out how the UK will leave the EU. What do you think should happen next?
People were asked to rank the options:
Campaign for a second referendum
We should push back the date we leave the EU to get more time to negotiate another deal
There should be a general election
The government should negotiate changes to the deal in order for us to leave by March 29th
We should leave the EU without a deal
When it comes to Brexit, 38 Degrees has focused on campaigns that unite thousands of us – like ensuring our environmental standards get stronger rather than weaker. We haven’t run campaigns that divide us – like campaigns that are strongly for or against Brexit. Do you think 38 Degrees should continue with this approach?
One thing being discussed is getting MPs from different parties to work together to decide the next steps for Brexit. Which of these statements best describes how you feel about this idea?
