With less than eight months until Britain is due to leave the EU, Prime Minister Theresa May has yet to find a proposal to maintain economic ties with the bloc that pleases both sides of her divided party and is acceptable to negotiators in Brussels.

In the Brexit referendum of June 23, 2016, there were 17.4 million votes cast (51.9 percent) in favour of leaving the European Union, despite many opinion polls predicting the opposite.

Some 42 percent of those questioned said there should be a vote on the final Brexit terms, while 40 percent said there should not.

The resignations occurred just days after the prime minister secured approval from her cabinet to negotiate a "business friendly" exit from the EU.

Ms Keegan, who supported the Remain campaign, ripped into calls for a second Brexit referendum and warned British people should not be forced into having another vote.

As before the referendum, when President of the European Council Donald Tusk warned Brits that voting to Leave could mean "the end of Western political civilisation" and David Cameron asked then-U.S. President Barack Obama to threaten to send the country to the "back of the queue" for a trade deal, former Remain campaigner Theresa May appears to have support from overseas for her scare tactics.

Most British voters support a referendum on the final terms on any Brexit deal, according to a YouGov poll for United Kingdom newspaper The Times.

YouGov places the figure at 71 per cent, while former Tory donor Lord Ashcroft puts it at 73 per cent.Recent polling also shows that 70 per cent of undergraduates think they would be worse off after Brexit, while 67 per cent would support another vote.Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said: "The referendum two years ago was influenced by the Conservatives' resistance to open up the vote to 16- and 17-year-olds".

Best for Britain chief Eloise Todd said: 'Elected politicians are behind public opinion - two years behind to be precise.

Only 29 per cent of those surveyed said the Prime Minister's Chequers Brexit blueprint would be a good thing for the United Kingdom, with 47 per cent suggesting it would be bad and 19 per cent saying they did not know.

A second question in the YouGov and Times poll asked how people would vote if there was now a re-run of the original Brexit vote to leave or remain in the EU.
