Channel 4 will be holding a live studio discussion Brexit: What The Nation Really Thinks, on Monday 5th November, hosted by Krishnan Guru-Murthy in Birmingham, the most evenly split city in Britain in the 2016 Referendum.
As the deadline for a deal gets ever closer, calls grow louder for a second referendum to give the public a final say on the outcome. This live programme will explore the results of a poll conducted exclusively for Channel 4 that will reveal where the British public now stand on all key aspects of Brexit. This will be the largest independent survey on public opinion on Brexit since the referendum. The pollsters, Survation, will have spoken to approximately 20,000 people from every constituency in Britain in order to get an accurate picture of what the country is thinking.
Krishnan Guru-Murthy will interview polling expert Sir John Curtis and will also speak to a range of politicians who will respond to the findings and debate how key issues such as immigration, the economy, and Northern Ireland have impacted on the most important decision Britain has had to make since it first joined the EU more than 40 years ago.
Two years on from the decision to leave, politicians seem more divided than ever, but what do the people now really think is the best path for the country to take?
Alex Gardiner, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor said,“This debate will stimulate important and insightful discussion with a wide variety of views from the panel and audience. Issues around Brexit now have a prominent position in the national conversation, with ever changing focal points. Channel 4 is well known for exploring challenging and political issues in a fair and balanced way and with this programme we want to help audiences understand the true sentiment of the British people.”
Brexit: What The Nation Really Thinks is produced by Renegade Pictures, and will TX on Monday 5th November at 8pm
