 New research from Ipsos MORI shows that less than one in five (17%) trust the ‘British Establishment’ to put the needs of the nation first when it comes to Brexit, and that when asked whether 16 different politicians and institutions were more on the side of the British Establishment or more on the side of the British people, most are more likely to be seen as more on the side of the British Establishment than the British people (although many also answered either ‘both equally’ or ‘neither’).  Analysis of these findings, from an online poll of adults aged 18-75, also reveals a clear difference between Leave and Remain voters:

  • Leave voters are particularly likely to think that MPs who want to remain in the EU (54%), Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson (46%), judges (45%), the Liberal Democrat party (43%), the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn (both 39%) are ‘more on the side of the British Establishment’.
  • Yet, Remain voters think the opposite, considering the Conservative Party (55%), Prime Minister Boris Johnson (51%), MPs who want to leave the EU without a deal (46%), Nigel Farage (41%) and the Brexit Party (40%) as ‘more on the side of the British Establishment’.
