Nearly two-fifths of Remainers would be 'upset' if their child married a Brexit supporter, a survey has suggested.
The YouGov poll of 2,380 people found more than one in 10 (11%) remainers would describe themselves as "very upset" if their offspring hooked up with a Brexiteer, while another 28% said they would be "somewhat upset".
Only 11% of Brexit voters said they would be in any way upset if their child married a Remainer.
The poll also found that 11% of Labour supporters would be "very upset" if their child married a Tory, while just 2% of Conservatives said they would be similarly aggrieved if the positions were reversed.
Some 28% of Labour supporters and 17% of Tories said they "would not consider" dating someone from the other political party.
