I haven't waded into the Brexit debate a lot in the last year or so. But I think now is as good a time as any to update you on my thinking of what is occurring there. And that's because of a recent Sky News poll that Simon Nixon alerted me to on Twitter. Here's what Simon tweeted:
Sky data poll: 78% of UK voters think Brexit going badly, only 14% expect government to get a good deal; 50% back second referendum (vs 40% opposed); in a straight choice, 59% voters prefer no Brexit to no deal (41%). https://t.co/jX5xB0YSWj

The part that caught my eye was the bit about people wanting a second Brexit referendum. Sky News, for their part also tweeted numbers showing extreme dissatisfaction with how Theresa May is negotiating Brexit.
