That’s according to a poll of 858 Tory members by YouGov that asked which Brexit stance best reflected their view on how the government should proceed.

A whopping 66% backed a No Deal Brexit, including 82% of those who voted Leave and 22% who backed Remain in 2016.

Just 13% want the government to negotiate an alternative deal that would have the backing of Tory and DUP MPs and only 12% of Tory members think the government should continue to try and get Parliament to approve Theresa May’s current proposal.

A tiny 6% favour a compromise deal with Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party.

And unsurprisingly, 84% of Tory members oppose a second referendum.

Pretty stark numbers. But is anyone in Westminster even listening anymore? Perhaps those planning to stand in the impending Conservative leadership race might be.
