MORE than half of voters say Britain SHOULD quit the EU – and a quarter want us to go out with No Deal at all.

57 per cent said they thought we should still have Brexit in some way, three years after the referendum of the referendum.

That’s even more than the 48 per cent of the public who voted for us to leave back in 2016, showing attitudes are hardening in favour of our exit.

43 per cent want Britain to Remain in the EU, and 16 per cent wanted a softer Brexit, the YouGov research for The Times showed.

Just 13 per cent wanted us to quit the bloc with Theresa May’s dead deal, compared to 28 per cent who stressed Britain should leave with no deal at all.

The polling comes as Boris hardened his Brexit position yesterday, vowing to take us out of the EU by October 31 “do or die”.

He insisted that the Conservative parties will be heavily punished if we don’t come out.

Boris’ first plan will be to renegotiate the backstop with the EU, and if they refuse then persuade them to have a standstill transition period while we leave without an agreement and then renegotiate a trade deal.

He’s promised no more Brexit extensions

Brussels has already slapped down his ideas and insisted the deal can’t be re-opened.

One official even called the ideas “bulls**t” before he’s got anywhere near No10.

Boris and his leadership rival Jeremy Hunt will face another three weeks of gruelling hustings and campaigning, before members cast their ballots.

The new PM will be announced on July 23. But Theresa May will take her final PMQs on July 24 before officially going to the Queen to resign.

And they could face a vote of no confidence in their first days too, with Labour vowing to try and topple the Government.

Tories have hinted they could vote against the Government too if the next PM decides to push for No Deal.

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party are already hot on the tails of the Tories, beating them in the European elections and nearly taking their first MP seat in Peterborough earlier in the month.

The latest YouGov research shows that the Tories and Brexit Party are neck and neck at 22 per cent, followed by Labour on 20 per cent.
