Over 60% of Britons view Brexit negatively or find that their country’s withdrawal from the European Union has had more negative consequences than expected, according to a survey conducted by the Opinium polling agency for The Observer newspaper.

Only 14% of the poll’s 1,900 respondents felt their country was doing better since its final withdrawal from the EU and the Customs Union last year, Belga news agency reports.

According to The Observer, 42% of those who voted in favour of the withdrawal now have a negative assessment of that decision.

In recent months, Britons have been feeling the effects of Brexit, including empty shelves in stores, and petrol shortages due to a lack of truck drivers.

Before Brexit, many of these drivers came from Eastern Europe, but with the Brexit they lost the right to work in Britain.

Other professions are also facing staff shortages in the United Kingdom.
