Could someone please tell the 'flat earthers' on here?

Oh, I just have. Grin


SEVEN in 10 Britons now support Theresa May's plans for a hard Brexit which includes leaving the Single Market and taking back control of immigration, a bombshell poll finds today.
A shock survey of more than 20,000 ordinary voters found overwhelming support amongst both Leavers and Remainers for the PM's strategy of securing a clean break with the EU. 
It finds that two-thirds of people would rather quit with no deal at all than settle for a soft Brexit which would see the UK stay in the Single Market and continue accepting free movement. 
The stunning research, carried out by academics at the London School of Economics and Oxford University, is the most comprehensively polling exercise of its type since the referendum.

You have absolutely no idea what Brexit is, let alone what it means.

This is like you really singing the praises of asteroid CX-193-K4-77, in an attempt to gloat to the sun.

Here is a sensible article which shows media spin on this report.

Thanks rader, interesting to read how the study was conducted and why it was misinterpreted.

So more accurate to say "Seven in 10 Britons consider that if they had to make a choice, hard Brexit would be less bad than soft Brexit."
