Bregrets? There Are A Few…



Seven years ago to the day, the UK voted to leave the European Union – a result which shocked even some of those campaigning for it, and one which changed the political landscape in Europe forever.

While still a minority, 12 percent of ‘Leave’ voters are now displaying signs of ‘Bregret’, saying they would support or strongly support a return to the European fold.
