A NEW poll has shown that Europeans want Britain to be punished in the Brexit negotiations.
While an Ipsos Mori survey of people from 16 different countries found that 49% of Brits were sad about their departure from the EU, some of their closest neighbours are hoping to serve them their ‘comeuppance’.
The French were the least upset by the divorce with only 25% saying they were sad to see Britain leave.
But to add insult to injury, they had the most amount of people who think the UK should be given an ‘unfavourable’ Brexit deal, with 39% believing it will discourage other exits.
Belgians came a close second with 34%, while 30% of Spaniards and 28% of Italians also believe Britain should be punished.
Some 43% of Italians are ready to boycott British goods, the most inclined to do so, followed by the Spanish with 37% and Germans on 33%.
Some 56% of Brits said the UK should be given a favourable deal.
Adults aged under 65 were quizzed online in Belgium, France, Britain, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain, and Sweden.
