Prof Bale went on: "Tory members' dislike for the PM's deal really comes out when we asked about a referendum in which the choice came down to her deal or no-deal".

"Grassroots Tories are even less impressed than Tory Members of Parliament (MPs)", said Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London, who helps run the Party Members project.

Theresa May will "find a way" to get her Brexit deal through parliament, foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has said.

"It appears that those members are in no mood for compromise".

"Moreover, the Tory rank and file, it seems, are convinced that no deal is better than May's deal".

The academic suggested there were two specific issues behind the opposition to Mrs May's deal: the Irish backstop and a belief that fears of disruption from a no-deal were "exaggerated or invented".

Of the new residents, 34.38 percent said they moved due to their job and another 31.25 percent said they planned to retire there. Among the reasons people are moving to OR , the company broke out "family" and "lifestye" as reasons for the state's popularity.

"Tory members have become convinced that the Irish backstop is a bad idea, ' he said, citing that 40% think it is a reason in itself to reject a deal, and 21% think it is irrelevant because Mrs May's deal 'is a bad one anyway". "Some 76 per cent of Conservative Party members would plump for no-deal". Mr Varadkar said that he hoped the planning would be "futile" but it was necessary before the March 29 exit date. We agreed that we would stand by the agreement we made with the United Kingdom.

He said: "We're happy to offer reassurances and guarantees to the United Kingdom, but not reassurances and guarantees that contradict or change what was agreed back in November".

He was writing in reaction to a report from the Irish Independent on how the Irish government is set to seek millions of euros in special aid from Brussels in the event of the United Kingdom crashing out of the Europe Union (EU) without a deal.

In Singapore today the foreign secretary said May would be able to get her deal through the Commons once she has come back with "reassurances" from the European Union on the Irish backstop that has prevented many MPs from supporting her deal.

"Forces routinely share officers through Mutual Aid".
