Our poll comes as talks between the UK and the EU resumed today in London.

Mr Johnson last week insisted Britain would leave with no deal unless there was a major change in approach from Brussels.

EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has indicated the EU is willing to compromise following the Prime Minister’s warning.

Mr Barnier told the European Parliament on Wednesday: “We will seek the necessary compromises on both sides in order to do our utmost to reach an agreement and we will do so right up until the last day which it’s possible to do so.”

Downing Street said Mr Johnson and Michael Gove made clear the EU had to show it was serious about talking intensively and finally accept it was dealing with an “independent and sovereign country”.

A Number 10 spokeswoman said: “We welcome the fact that Mr Barnier acknowledged both points this morning, and additionally that movement would be needed from both sides in the talks if agreement was to be reached.

“As he made clear, ‘any future agreement will be made in respect of the decision-making autonomy of the European Union and with respect for British sovereignty.’” polled 12,967 people from 11am to 8.30pm on October 22.
