Theresa May's Brexit plan has been well received by both sides of the EU referendum debate
Britons support the Government’s plan to leave the single market in order to regain control of British borders, with 74 per cent of respondents agreeing Britain must take control over EU immigration – including 54 per cent of Remain voters.
Meanwhile, 57 per cent back Mrs May’s plans to leave the single market in search of new trade deals, according to the YouGov poll.
Both Leave and Remain supporters are keen to retain some aspects of EU membership too, with both camps backing continued intelligence sharing with EU members as well as rights for EU citizens living in Britain.
Britons also appear to support maintaining an open border with Ireland despite a desire to take back control over who enters the UK.
