Sunday Times buries People’s Vote poll after the result doesn’t go the way they hoped

The Sunday Times dropped a poll on the People’s Vote to an inside page after the result didn’t go the way they hoped.

A survey of 12,939 readers revealed 70 per cent want a second referendum on EU membership.

Rupert Murdoch, who owns the newspaper, was an ardent supporter of Brexit, a viewpoint which has been widely reflected in the media publications he runs.

In the run-up to the referendum Anthony Hilton wrote in the Evening Standard that:

“I once asked Rupert Murdoch why he was so opposed to the European Union. ‘That’s easy,’ he replied. ‘When I go into Downing Street they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice'”.
