Iain backing Remain (By Iain Donaldson)

A robust poll conducted by the Guardian Newspaper shows that Manchester voters would reject Brexit in even greater numbers today than when the referendum took place in 2016.

The poll shows that the remain vote:

  • In Manchester Withington support for remain has increased from 73.7% to 77.4%, the strongest in the North West.
  • In Manchester Central support for remain has increased from 63.3% to 68.4%;
  • in Manchester Gorton support for remain has increased from 62.1% to 68%;
  • In Wythenshawe and Sale East support for remain has increased from 50.1% to 58.1%; and, most significantly,
  • In Blackley and Broughton which narrowly voted leave at the referendum, support for remain has increased from 48.7% to 59% Remain.

Liberal Democrat parliamentary spokesperson for Blackley and Broughton, Iain Donaldson, stated "This poll shows that people are no longer being fooled by the cavalier lies of the Brexiteers."

"In Blackley and Broughton people who have supported Labour for years have seen their MP follow Mrs May through the voting lobby to support empowering Conservative ministers to overule Parliament, and to stop MP's having the final say over Brexit."

With Labour and the Conservatives now both formally backing similar Brexit proposals, the Liberal Democrats continue to work with others in all parties and none to deliver a referendum on the deal which would enable the people of Britain to reject a Brexit deal that is bad for Britain, or worst still a no deal with no guarantees and no trade, or travel agreements.
