Nine out of 10 constituencies in Britain want a final say, with a majority of Londoners agreeing with a People’s Vote, according to a new nationwide poll.

The poll by campaign group Right to Vote finds voters in nine out of 10 of Britain’s 632 constituencies support a final say.

The survey of 9,500 adults across Britain also reveals that 68% of voters across the capital’s 73 constituencies who expressed a view want a final say, with 32% against.

The poll also reveals that voters in the seats of EVERY Westminster party leader want a final say - that’s 59% in Theresa May’s Maidenhead constituency, 75% in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington North seat, 61% in SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford’s Ross, Skye and Lochaber seat, 60% in The Independent Group’s Heidi Allen’s South Cambridgeshire seat, 71% in Lib Dem Vince Cable’s Twickenham seat, and 61% in Plaid Cymru Westminster leader Liz Saville Roberts’s Dwyfor Meirionnydd seat.

Across London, numbers of voters who want a final say include 86% in the Cities of Westminster and London constituency, 80% in Greg Hands’s Chelsea and Fulham seat, 79% in Emily Thornbury’s Islington South seat, 75% in Poplar and Limehouse, 75% in Kier Starmer’s Holborn & St Pancras seat, 74% in Wimbledon and 59% in Boris Johnson’s Uxbridge and Ruislip South seat.

Dominic Grieve MP, a co-founder of Right to Vote - which seeks a final say in the Brexit process - said: “Asking for more time and opposition help to salvage a deal nobody wants is yet again merely delaying the moment of truth.

“We need a meaningful delay to agree a practical and credible proposal which can be put to the people for a final say. What started with the people should end with the people.”
