Former Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has said that Brexit could be under threat as the Conservative Party was backtracking on “finishing” the UK’s exit from the European Union. The GB News presenter and Former MEP claimed that Brexit appeared to be unravelling during an episode of his YouTube Channel.
He highlighted former Chancellor George Osborne’s prediction that the UK would rejoin the EU within 20 years.
Other threats to Brexit, he said, were the UK’s migration scheme to send asylum seekers to Rwanda and the upcoming by-election in Wakefield.
As a result of his warnings, Express.co.uk asked readers their opinions on whether Brexit was unravelling.
In a poll that ran from midday on Saturday, June 18, to 4pm on Wednesday, June 22, Express.co.uk asked: “Do you think Brexit is unravelling following Nigel Farage’s warning?”
A total of 1,800 people cast their votes with a majority, 59 percent (1,065 people), answering “yes”. Brexit is unravelling.
Meanwhile, 38 percent (679 people) said “no”, it is not and just three percent (56 people) said they did not know either way.
Despite being independent of the EU for two years Britain still faces challenges from Brexit.
In another poll that ran from 9am on Wednesday, June 15, to midday on Friday, June 17, Express.co.uk asked: “Has Brexit been a success?”
Overall, 3,692 people responded with a strong 64 percent (2,360 people), answering “no”, Brexit has not been a success.
A further 34 percent (1,257 people) said “yes”, Brexit has been a success while just two percent (75 people) said they did not know either way.
Hundreds of comments were left on both accompanying articles as readers debated the successes of Brexit.
One reader, username Mattygroves said: “Brexit has been an unmitigated disaster.”
Username MShepp said: “It has not been as successful as it should have been because of the actions of a europhile government, Parliament, civil service and HoL.”
And username Mermag75 said: “Boris and his Government haven’t implemented it properly.”
Others commented that the Brexit delivered is what they voted for with username Jean Moreau writing: “It was always a poorly thought out idea that made little sense.
“It is not unravelling, it is unfolding more or less exactly as predicted.”
Username 7895 said: “Brexit isn’t unravelling, it’s giving little Britain exactly what it voted for.”
And username Saoutchik wrote: “Worst self-inflicted disaster in the history of history.”
However, username frances48 said: “Brexit is urgently needed to be completely done and dusted.”
Another reader, username Snusket said: “Brexit was a FULL success!”

Others argued that not enough time had passed to fairly judge if Brexit was successful.
Username JL77 said: “Due to Covid it cannot be judged as a success yet but far better than being in the EU.”
Username DNeil said: “So far….yes and we have only just begun. Remove further barriers to success like Remoaners and it will be even better.”
And username Jock-the-scot said: “Give it time as we have hardly had time to put our foot on the first rung of the freedom ladder.”
