POLL: VOTERS BEHIND SNP PLAN TO AVOID NO DEAL BREXIT

People in Scotland are overwhelmingly behind the SNP’s proposal to extend negotiations with the EU if necessary to avoid a No Deal Brexit, a new poll has found.
 
The Survation poll found that 60% of Scottish voters supported an extension, proposed last month by the First Minister, while only 27% opposed – with SNP, Labour and Tory voters all backing the position.
 
The poll also found that only 27% of the public believe the Tories have given “an appropriate amount of consideration” to the views of people in Scotland, with 62% believing they have not.
 
SNP MP Stephen Gethins said:
 
“Scottish voters from every political party support the SNP’s call to extend the negotiating period with the EU as Theresa May’s disastrous handling of Brexit negotiations goes from bad to worse.
 
“A ‘No deal’ or ‘no detail‘ Brexit simply isn’t acceptable to Scotland, where we voted decisively to remain in the EU - a position that has been completely ignored and disrespected by Westminster at every turn.
 
“The SNP has argued from day one for a compromise that, after Brexit, the UK should remain in the single market and customs union – which is around eight times bigger than the UK market alone – to protect Scottish jobs and household incomes, and it’s becoming clearer by the day that Theresa May’s extreme approach to Brexit needs to change.”

Notes:
 
If the planned period of negotiations between the EU and the UK ends in March 2019 without a detailed agreement on a future trading relationship with the EU, do you think that…?
