- Vote: How well have the Tories handled Brexit?

A huge majority of voters in an AOL poll has expressed relief that the High Court has blocked Theresa May's bid to advance her Brexit plans without a vote by MPs.

The Prime Minister believed she didn't need the authority of the House of Commons to trigger Article 50, which paves the way for negotiations with member states for Britain's exit from the EU.

But judges disagreed - and their verdict was supported by 69% of more than 15,000 AOL users, who in the same poll agreed, by 77% to 23%, that MPs were likely to block Brexit.
