Apparently, it's no longer Brexit. It's officially Regrex-It. Turns out, given the chance again, Britain would vote to stay in the EU, not leave. According to a new, 20,000 person survey, the largest since the 2016 referendum, young people, and those who didn't bother to vote, would think again. The poll shows sentiment has shifted up and down the country, entire cities that voted leave before from Nottingham to Southampton, all now solidly remain.
00:00:32
So could a second referendum be on the cards? Well prime minister Theresa May is having none of it she's repeatedly ruled out a rerun.>> Brexit means Brexit. Brexit continues to mean Brexit.>> Former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major have called for one. Then, what's set to be 700,000 people took to the streets of London to demand one.
00:00:57
That would make it the U.K.'s second largest protest ever.>> So some of the polling now is suggesting that people's opinions are changing over Brexit. There might be a little bit of regrexit stepping in.>> Liz Piper is one of our Brexit experts at Reuters.>> I think the points about Brexit is that anything is possible, and a second referendum is possible.
00:01:17
But we're nowhere near that point yet. Yes, there are growing calls, others think it's like scratching off a scab and letting Britain bleed again. The Brexit vote split families, split the country. Do we really want to go revisit all those arguments that for two or three years or is it four, I can't remember have been dominating political life in this country?
00:01:38
>> And anyway as it's been the case for months now, Britain actually needs a Brexit deal. And no it still doesn't have one. Although apparently it's 95% there.>> Every time you think you have a breakthrough, something seems to scupper that breakthrough time. Now, we're back and forthing again about what's called the backstop deal to prevent a return to a hard border in Northern Ireland.
00:02:01
That seems to be the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle. Once the British cabinet signs off on what they see is a good deal for Northern Ireland. The things will step up very quickly, and we could see a deal in days.>> If, by the 29th of March, May can't get a deal, the poll says most people want Britain to leave without one.
00:02:22
A similar number want to stay in the EU, while some say departure should be delayed until an agreement can be reached. So it's confusing. Meanwhile, Theresa May is shifting up the gears to court European support. She traveled to Europe on Friday, to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War.

ying wreaths, first, with her Belgian, and then her French counterpart, a visit, she said, to reflect shared history. How Brexit will be remembered a century from now, that's anyone's guess.
