Most Leave voters want death penalty restored after Brexit, poll reveals

More than half of Leave voters want to see capital punishment reinstated after Brexit, a new poll has found.

According to a YouGov survey, 53 percent of people who voted for the UK to leave the bloc back in July’s referendum would like the death penalty brought back.

The poll also found that more than 40 percent of Leavers want corporal punishment reintroduced in schools. That is in stark contrast to the mere 14 percent of Remainers who would want it restored in a post-Brexit future.

Among other findings, 30 percent of Leave voters would also like traditional light bulbs to return to shops. The European Union abandoned the use of the bulbs as they are thought to be inefficient. Although the drop in the use of the bulbs cost the EU economy up to €10 billion, carbon dioxide emissions were cut by 15 million tonnes.

The findings were released on Wednesday, the same day Prime Minister Theresa May triggered Article 50, formally announcing to EU officials the start of the two-year process to get the UK out of the bloc.

The poll surveyed 2,060 people on the 21 and 22 of February, 810 of whom voted for Britain to stay in the bloc. According to the findings, up to 20 percent of Remainers would also back the death penalty.

  1. That’s all we need, the death penalty.

    Undoubtedly there’s people out there who deserve it, like Peter Tobin and Peter Sutcliffe and that other monster Brady.

    The problem is, ‘the powers that be’ have killed innocent people with the death penalty, and they’ve proved time and time again they just can’t be trusted to get it right.

  2. I wouldn’t like to see the death penalty reinstated. Imagine being at the mercy of a Tory home secretary, who would have the final say on whether someone could be reprieved, or not?

    It’s a worrying thought that so many people in the country are so backwards looking, even wanting kids to be thrashed at school? It would be a paedophiles paradise, it beggars belief.

  3. 38 ‘You have heard that it was said, “Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.”[a] 39 BUT I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

    Jesus used it as an example what not to do. I am not here to preach it is so hard to do the right thing and I am far from perfect.

    43 ‘You have heard that it was said, “Love your neighbour[b] and hate your enemy.” 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

  4. I agree they are evil people led by satan, sometimes with their full knowledge. This world is corrupt and unfortunately the main stream Christian religion has been corrupted and is used to subvert by evil. The best place for evil to hide is in the shadow of good. They will pay the price in the end.
