Mark Easton presented some interesting “Brexit expectations” polling by ComRes for the BBC last night on the Ten O’clock News. Here are a couple of highlights:

Most Britons think that maintaining access to the single market should be the priority for the Government when negotiating the UK’s withdrawal from the EU (66%), while just a third say this of restricting freedom of movement (31%).

Half of Britons (52%) say they think that the UK will stay in the single market with some limits on freedom of movement.

On that second point, even 54% of Leave voters say they think that the UK will stay in the single market with some limits on freedom of movement.

This is all very interesting and rather in contrast to the pronouncements of our new Brexit cabinet minister, David Davis.
