Every country surveyed would now vote Remain in an EU referendum... Including Britain

Regrexit – AKA Brexit regret – is a real thing.

Maybe it stems from the misleading promises surrounding NHS funding, the sudden increase in hate crimes, or it could simply be because our best plan is currently a "red, white and blue Brexit," whatever that means.

For some of the 52 per cent, the regret could originate from some of the scary statistics that are currently coming to light. A report published by thinktank IPPR this week states that Brexit “is the firing gun on a decade of disruption”.

With this in mind, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that all countries in Europe, including the UK, would vote to Remain if there was a referendum now - that's according to the End of Year survey of 14,000 people across 13 countries, by the Worldwide Independent Network of Market Research / Gallup International Association (WIN/GIA):


On average, 64 per cent of people across EU countries would vote to stay in the EU.

In Spain and Ireland, this number is 80 per cent, and in Denmark and Germany it’s 75 per cent.

In the UK, 54 percent of those surveyed said they would now vote to stay in the EU.

The survey also found that anti-EU sentiment has dropped in most countries.

In Ireland and Germany, the proportion of people who would vote to stay in the EU has risen by two percentage points in just one year, and by three in France.
