With one year to go until Britain starts to leave the European Union, we asked our readers how they would vote in a referendum today.
At the time of writing, we had over 2,800 people vote in our online poll on our story.
Back in 2016, the country as a whole voted to leave 51.9pc to 48.1pc, sparking the Brexit process that we are in today.
However, our reader results show that 69pc would now vote to remain, while 31pc would vote to leave the EU.
People also left comments on our Facebook page regarding the idea of a second referendum and how they would vote now:
Gary Woolston: “Another vote is not needed, country has spoken, honour it now!”
Tracey Cosford: “You can’t keep have referendums until the vote goes your way...that simply devalues the whole democratic system.”
Hazel Randall: “Remain. No economic argument given to leave and politicians are giving feeble excuses.”
Pat Beckett: “We had our vote nearly two years ago, only time will tell if we made the right decision...”
Gemma Vincent: “Remain as before. However there’s never going to be a second one.”
Andy Ramm: “Leave - I don’t understand why anyone would want to stay...”
Karen Steward: “Remain then and now. No sound economic reason to leave, plenty to stay.”
Debra Lafi: “Leave - we have made a choice now let’s get on with it. If the vote went the other way would we still be having this conversation?”
Paul Shackleton: “I believe we have had a vote and must honour it as we live in a democratic society, if we have made a mistake we will have to take it on the chin...”
