A huge majority of British people are feeling positive one month after Brexit

More than 50,000 people took an exclusive poll by Express.co.uk last week which asked: “One month on from the EU referendum, how do you feel?”The results were decisive, with 71 per cent of people saying they felt “hopeful and positive”, while just 19 per cent were “fearful and concerned” and ten per cent “uncertain”.

The overwhelmingly optimistic response comes as Britain’s economy continues to grow, as well as the prospect of great border controls against a backdrop of terror attacks across Europe.

Yesterday, official figures showed the country’s GDP had grown by 0.6% in the second quarter of the year – highlighting the unnecessary warnings repeatedly issued by the Remain side as part of its Project Fear campaign in the lead-up to the in-out vote.The FTSE 250, a good indicator for the strength of the country’s economy, has also soared in recent weeks and today climbed even higher than it was on the day of the referendum.
