Europe: little change in views of Lib Dem members

ReferendumBack in the spring, I carried out a survey of Liberal Democrat members, looking at what they thought should be the party's position on Europe and whether there should be cooperation with other parties to help oppose Brexit.

Has the experience of the 2017 general election changed views? Not really. A repeat of the questions asked earlier has found a very similar picture save in one respect.

Not surprisingly, the proportion of members thinking the party is headed in the right direction has dropped from 92% to 67%. They've not switched to thinking its heading in the wrong direction (that's only risen slightly from 3% to 8%) but rather there is now a large chunk who say 'not sure/don't know' (25%, up from 4%).

Otherwise, Lib Dem members continue to strongly back opposing Brexit (though with a shift towards supporting opposing it outright, rather than via having a further referendum or general election on it). Members also continue to strongly support some form of cross-party cooperation to oppose Brexit (though with a dip in support for formal seat deals).
