VOTERS in Wantage and Banbury back a second referendum on Brexit, according to new research.

Data from a centre-right group studying 31 constituencies around the country suggests 77 per cent of 18-24 year olds in Wantage back another vote.

The Right To Vote research says 58 per cent of all voters in the seat would be behind the proposal. Nationwide, the figure is 56 per cent - a level matched in Banbury, where 74 per cent of 18-24 year olds are in favour, according to the organisation.

However those 65 and older are against another referendum - sometimes labelled a 'People's Vote' - by 52 per cent (Wantage) and 55 per cent (Banbury).

Right to Vote was formed in January by several high profile Tory MPs in response to what it describes as the Government’s failure to navigate Brexit. Co-founders include Dominic Grieve, Justine Greening, Sam Gyimah and three MPs who resigned from the Conservative Party last month, Heidi Allen, Anna Soubry and Dr Sarah Wollaston.

Wantage MP Ed Vaizey and Banbury's Victoria Prentis, who are both Conservatives and backed remain, have expressed support for the Prime Minister's deal previously.

The chair of Right to Vote, Dr Phillip Lee MP - who was the first minister to resign from the Government to campaign for another referendum - said: “This brand new research is further evidence that the public mood is hardening towards a final say in the Brexit process.

“Nothing approaches the promises that were made in 2016, and as it stands, everything is currently a mess – offering people a final say is quite simply the only credible solution available.

“We all need to take a timeout, to allow the public the right to vote and have a final say.”

Brexit backers say the public has already had one referendum and another vote would betray the democratic process.
