Last week’s poll: How should the UK approach Brexit negotiations?

Engineer readers believe that trade should take priority over immigration in Brexit negotiations

Our polls concerning Britain’s impending exit from the European Union always attract a strong response, and last week’s polls no exception: 660 readers responded over the course of the week. And one option attracted a clear majority of responses, with 52 per cent saying that trade should take priority in our talks with our soon-to-be former EU partners. The next largest group, 19 per cent, said that immigration controls should be the primary concern of negotiators. Only slightly fewer, 15 per cent, agreed with the statement from 10 Downing Street that negotiations would not be a zero sum game, and 14 per cent declined to pick an option. With Prime Minister Theresa May making her long-awaited speech on Brexit priorities later today, we don’t have long to wait to see how the negotiations might map out.
