It would be an understatement to claim that this finding shows confidence in both Boris Johnson’s intentions and his capabilities.

For 78 per cent of our Conservative Party members’ panel evidently believe not only that the Prime Minister intends to take Britain out of the EU by the due date, but that those who seek to stop him doing so will fail.

Elsewhere, 86 per cent support the Government’s decision to seek prorogation, with only 13 per cent opposed.  Party activists emphatically support their new leader. There is no other way of reading these findings.
