MORE than two-thirds of Scots want another referendum on Brexit, according to a new poll.

The ICM survey of 5000 people across the UK showed that Scotland wanted another vote more than any other part of Britain.

Nicola Sturgeon has previously said she could back another vote on the UK’s future with the EU, saying “the argument for giving people a say on the final outcome may become irresistible”.

When asked if the public should have the “chance to take a final decision on whether or not to leave the EU in another referendum when the outcome of the negotiation is known”, 69 per cent of Scottish voters said yes.

Across the UK, the figure was 58 per cent in favour to 42 per cent against.

In Scotland, there is still little enthusiasm for Brexit and little optimism about the impact leaving the EU will have on the country’s economy.

Only 25 per cent of Scots think leaving the EU will be positive for the economy – far lower than any other part of the UK.

North of the Border 62 per cent of people believe it will be negative for the economy, and 41 per cent expect it to be negative for their own personal finances. Just 14 per cent said it would make them better off.

Across the UK as a whole, it was only really Tories, Ukip voters and the elderly or retired who seemed to feel strongly optimistic for the economy,

When voters were asked how they thought Brexit would impact on the way of life in Britain today in general, Scots were, again, the most pessimistic. A total of 54 per cent said they thought it would be negative, compared to 41 per cent for the UK as a whole.

Across the whole of the UK there was a stark difference between younger and older voters.

The older someone was the more positive they were about Brexit and its impact on the economy, their way of life and the pound in their pocket.

Scots, the young, non-whites and, despite Jeremy Corbyn’s confusing position on Europe, Labour voters are all very strongly against leaving the EU.

In another startling revelation for Corbyn, the poll shows that 9 per cent of his supporters who backed Leave would now switch to Remain.

Alex Turk, a senior research executive at ICM Unlimited, said: “On the results of this poll of 5000, the result of a second EU referendum would be far from a foregone conclusion.”

Meanwhile, Brexit Secretary David Davis has said that the UK will be able to sign new trade deals during the two-year “implementation” period, but will obey EU rules stopping them from being acted on until that two-year period is over.

He said: “Participating in a customs union should not preclude us from formally negotiating – or indeed signing – trade agreements. Although, of course, they would not enter into force until the implementation period has ended.”

Jacob Rees Mogg said Davis was “weak”.
