Concern about the prospect of no-deal Brexit has increased as we move another day closer to the current Brexit deadline, a Sky Data poll reveals.
The majority of Britons still think no-deal is unlikely, but the public is becoming less certain – 31% now think it is likely that we will leave the EU without a deal on Friday, up four percentage points from yesterday, while 55% think it is unlikely, down seven points.
Theresa May is seeking an extension to Article 50 to delay Brexit to 30 June, but senior EU figures have called for a much longer extension – and sought a plan from the prime minister for how the extra time would be used to resolve the impasse between the government and parliament, which has repeatedly rejected her Brexit deal.
The UK will automatically leave the EU without a deal if an extension is not agreed, and Britain does not decide to remain in the EU by revoking Article 50, before 11pm on Friday.
Britons are increasingly worried about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit happening on 12 April: 51% say they are worried, up three points overnight, while 31% are excited by the prospect, down two points.
