VOTERS in Swindon say the situation with Brexit is a mess and they are sick of if.

They were reacting to the chaos following the voting down of the prime minister’s withdrawal agreement in the House of Commons on Tuesday.

The Adver spoke to voters to gauge their reaction to the result.

“It’s a mess at the moment. There is not much clarity on what the government are going to do” said Jo Rowlell, a Leave voter.

“I think that the Conservative and Labour should work together and try and figure out a deal.

“Everytime it comes on the TV now I turn it off. People are sick of it. People talk about another vote but I don’t see how that would help. I think Theresa May is a tough woman, but I don’t envy her now.”

Another Leave voter, who did not want to be named, said it’s Theresa May’s own MPs' fault that the deal never got voted through.

She said: “Idiot MPs should get together and work out what they plan to do! What is Theresa May supposed to do if they won’t back her or put forward an alternative?

“They’ve back-stabbed her. If she can’t do it, we need someone like Nigel Farage. I don’t necessarily agree with all of his policies, but we need someone who believes in Brexit and go to the EU and say: ‘Right this is what the British people want!’.”

Asked whether another referendum was the answer to Brexit, she added: “A new referendum would be pointless. The MPs haven’t listened to us the first time we voted why would a second be any different. They’re too busy arguing amongst themselves.”

A second referendum, or People’s Vote as it is called by supporters, is not backed by the Remain voters the Adver spoke to either.

One said: “Another vote would just make us look stupid. I know we do look stupid at the moment – but it won’t help our standing with the rest of the world."

Asked what Mrs May should do, she called for her to stand down, saying: “As a woman I think she should resign. She’s just the messenger but I don’t think she can go like this.

“Her MPs are just ganging up on her. What she should have done was just own it but she didn’t do that.”

The prime minister's deal lost by 202 votes to 430 the biggest defeat for a government in modern history.

It is not clear what will happen now, with Mrs May pledging to open up talks with MPs from across the house to try reach a consensus before coming back to parliament with a new plan.

There are 72 days left until the UK is expected to leave the EU on March 29. The vote was due to be held in December but was delayed by the prime minister.
