Does Britain still want Brexit?

"The four most recent readings - taken by BMG Research and Survation between November and January - have, on average, once the 8% who said "don't know" are left to one side, put Remain on 52% and Leave on 48%.

In contrast, four such polls undertaken towards the end of 2016 still put Leave narrowly ahead, by 51% to 49%.

Similarly, four recent polls - conducted by ICM and ComRes between December and March - that looked at how people might vote in a second referendum, albeit without posing the exact question that was on the ballot paper, have also on average put Remain slightly ahead - by 51% to 49%."

One of the most divisive topics in the UK remains to be so even almost two years later. I wonder how it will change once we officially leave next year.

I think the ”stay” side will increase when the terms of the leaving are determined.

#1 I reckon so as well at the moment. From the little information the public are given, the terms being offered look hardly encouraging.

No, I guess it is a bit like when two people living together move apart. It usually doesn't get cheaper living on your own.

But, on the other hand, when you live on your own you can decide which order to put your cutlery in the drawer. :-)
