Labour and Tories found to have least clear Brexit policies

Labour and the Conservative Party have the least clear policies on Brexit, according to a YouGov poll.

Only 13 per cent of those asked thought Labour’s Brexit policies were clear, with the Conservative Party managing 17 per cent.

The Brexit Party was found to have the clearest policies on Brexit; with 59 per cent of Britons saying the policies were either “very clear” or “fairly clear”.

UKIP did less well with less than half of their voters (48%) finding their policies to be clear.

The two main parties did not fair much better with their own voters, as YouGov found only a fifth (21%) of 2017 Labour voters thought their party has clear policies, with just a quarter of Conservatives (26%) saying the same for their own party.

The Liberal Democrats faired the best among the anti-Brexit parties with 41 per cent of people thinking they have a good understanding of their position.

The other anti-Brexit parties Greens and Change UK – who are also campaigning for a second referendum on Brexit – only had a third of people (34% and 31% respectively) believing their parties were clear on Brexit.
