SIR - The most recent poll (Omnisis, August 4) shows 61per cent of those questioned answering 'yes' to the question 'Should the UK join the European Union?' , with just 39per cent saying 'no'.

We have come a long way since the June 2016 referendum. People have had seven years to become aware of just what a mistake Brexit is - the biggest policy error in over one hundred years.

The shift in opinion to 'Rejoin' has accelerated in the last 12 months. A year ago the Omnisis figures were 53:47.

Two points emerge. First, we must challenge the fraudulent line put forward by Brexit supporters that the June 2016 outcome (52per cent to leave, 48per cent to stay) is somehow sacrosanct and must never be challenged. It was a fluky win, built on lies that have now been seen through. 'Bradford for Europe', 'Leeds for Europe' and altogether a good dozen pro-Rejoin organisations exist in Yorkshire alone and continue the educational work.

Secondly, with such a strong pro-EU tide now running Starmer should give up his hollow pretence that Labour can “make Brexit work”. He should re-orientate Labour policy and look for ways, in the first instance, for any Labour government to seek to join the Single Market.
