As ever YouGov is quick off the mark and has just published the above polling on the public’s reaction to the events last night in Clapham.
Inevitably there is a gender divide but the striking feature is the contrast with attitudes to other protests – clearly last night struck a chord with women. So whereas the female part of the sample split 42-39 in supporting the action going ahead on the general issue of protest during the pandemic they are opposed by 59% to 26%.
Inevitably there was a Brexit divide. Remainers backed the action by 49% to 28% while leavers opposed by 54% to 32%.
