Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, November 18th. According to a poll released by the British Public Opinion Research Company on the 17th, 56% of the respondents believed that Britain’s departure from the European Union was a wrong decision. Investigators changed their minds.
According to the survey results, 32% of the respondents still support "Brexit". Nearly 20% of those surveyed who voted for "Brexit" said they had changed their minds. About 91% of those surveyed who previously supported staying in the EU still believe that "Brexit" was a wrong decision.
The above-mentioned survey was carried out from the 9th to the 11th of this month, and the subjects of the survey were 1,708 British adults.
On June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom held a referendum on whether to leave the European Union. About 52% of voters supported "Brexit". After lengthy negotiations, the UK will officially withdraw from the EU on January 31, 2020.
According to the polls conducted by Yuguan Research Company on the intention to leave the European Union, since April 2021, the gap between the opinions that think "Brexit" is wrong and those who support "Brexit" has shown a trend of widening. In the latest survey, the gap widened to 24 percentage points.
Inflation in the UK has remained high since last winter. According to data from the British Office for National Statistics, the British Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 11.1% year-on-year in October, and the year-on-year increase hit a new high in 40 years. Sustained high inflation has increased the pressure on people's lives, and rising electricity, gas, food and beverage prices have forced the British to live frugally. (Liu Xiuling)
