Most Brits believe MPs had plenty of time to discuss Brexit despite Supreme Court judges ruling against Boris, poll finds


MOST Brits believe MPs had plenty of time discuss Brexit despite the Supreme court judges’ ruling against Boris Johnson, a poll has found.

Sixty per cent of voters think Parliament should get on with leaving the EU – including 35 per cent of 2016 Remain voters.


Thirty per cent of Brits said they were frustrated after the Supreme Court ruled the PM’s parliament shutdown was unlawful.

Just 20 per cent said they were pleased and 22 per cent said angry, 19 per cent relieved, 16 per cent bewildered and 10 per cent anxious.

While 11 per cent said they didn’t care either way, the Telegraph reports.

While Jeremy Corbyn calls for Boris to quit over his shutdown – Brits appear to be angry with all of the Commons.

The poll found 89 per cent of people said “all of Parliament” were to blame over the lack of progress in Brexit.

Boris has been blasted across the House for his dramatic move to stop MPs from sitting for five weeks.

Remainers claimed he suspended Parliament to avoid scrutiny over Brexit – while No10 said it was to announce a new legislative agenda with a Queen’s Speech.

But despite the chaos caused it appears Mr Johnson has dodged the ire of most Brits.

The PM was held less responsible for the Brexit crisis than Theresa May or David Cameron.

Boris garnered 69 per cent, while Mrs May topped the list with 82 per cent, Mr Cameron 77 and Mr Corbyn with 71 per cent.

Boris landed back in London today and will face angry MPs this afternoon with questions over his shutdown and Brexit.

It is believed the PM will call for an election tomorrow while senior Cabinet ministers advised him to suspend Parliament again.

A Government source said: “We are in truly uncharted territory here.

“Proroguing Parliament again would not be without risk, but every time the courts and others try to stop the Prime Minister, it reinforces the point that the Government is fighting a lone battle to carry out the will of the people.”
