A massive 75 percent voted in favour of Tory MP Mr Bone’s suggestion to hold a second referendum with just options on how the UK should leave Brussels. This amounted to 6,476 votes. Up to 2,070 disagreed with the demand, seemingly happy with Mr Johnson’s deal that today was passed through Parliament with a majority of 30 votes.
This was the equivalent of 24 percent of the ballot on Mr Bone’s suggestion.
Just one percent clicked the ‘don’t know’ option, which was 102 of the vote.
Reacting to the poll, Express.co.uk readers said if MPs were unwilling to sort out the mess of Brexit, voters would have to do it themselves.
One said: “IF they push for a referendum this would be the only fair way to do it we voted to Leave. Sadly (and embarrassingly) if parliament is too crooked and self absorbed to organise themselves (basically useless) then the people will have to decide again how we leave.

The Brexiteer berated the idea that a Remain option would be included on the ballot paper
“You cant argue that people where not sure what they where voting for, they voted to leave, so this would quash that argument as then they could decide HOW they wanted to leave.
“Remain is not a democratic option!”
Another said: “If there must be a 2nd Referendum then of course they should be leave options! 1st Referendum was Leave or Remain, 2nd would be the manner by which we leave. No Deal, clean break, WTO gets my vote.”
The constant efforts of Remainers trying to block Brexit prompted Mr Bone to suggest there should be a second referendum to end the impasse.

But the Brexiteer berated the idea that a Remain option would be included on the ballot paper, and instead suggested the nationwide poll would just include Leave options.
For example, he suggested having a vote between Boris Johnson’s deal and no deal “would be something to look at”.
Speaking to Sky News, the Brexiteer MP said staying in the EU “cannot possibly” be an option on the ballot paper.
He added: “Why doesn’t it just say ‘this deal or no deal?’
Donald Tusk said he would recommend an extension
“Because we’ve already voted to come out, so they can’t possibly put something on a referendum to say ‘we’ll stay in’, we’ve decided that bit.
“So if you were going to have a referendum, it will either be Boris Johnson’s deal or no deal.
“Now that sort of referendum might be something to look at.”
The Government published the Withdrawal Agreement Bill last night, and has proposed three days of intensive debate so legislation can complete its Commons stage by Thursday.
Up to 75 percent agreed with the statement
But this was thrown into chaos this evening.
MPs voted for the deal but the second vote saw them vote to delay the publishing of the legislation.
This means unless Mr Johnson can bounce back from that, Brexit may not happen on October 31 under his “do or die” mantra.
The Government’s three-day timetable to get Brexit done was rejected on the basis they do not think there is enough time for proper scrutiny of the legislation.
Now, Mr Johnson must go to Brussels to discuss a possible delay to the UK leaving the EU, which should be taking place in nine days time.
Express.co.uk asked 8,648 people for the poll that ran from 12.31 today until 10pm.
