    Although they are due to leave the EU in 6 months’ time, the British population now sees a much bleaker future for their country than at the time of the referendum 2 years ago. This is according to a poll published by British TV channel Sky News on Saturday. 

    In a poll of around 1,000 people, 56% thought Brexit would have more dramatic consequences than they predicted at the time of the vote. Only 9% saw a better future. 26% hadn’t changed their opinion. 

    The UK will leave the EU on the 29th of March 2019, according to the current calendar. 43% of those that supported Brexit two years ago now say it will not be as good for the UK as they first thought. 

    The laborious negotiations between Brussels and London are still dragging on. So much so that it could end up being a no-deal “divorce”, which could have massive economic consequences on both sides of the channel.
