Following the poll results, Prime Minister Theresa May launched a scathing attack against Mr Corbyn today – saying he has destroyed his reputation with Brexit failures. In Wednesday’s PMQs Mrs May accused Mr Corbyn of “playing politics” and being unable to decide if he wants Brexit or a second referendum. Mrs May said: “People used to say he was a conviction politician – not anymore.”
The Tory poll revealed 40 percent of the UK used to think the leader of the Opposition was a man of his word.
With his indecisiveness, Mr Corbyn’s integrity rating is now as bad as 1980 Labour leader Michael Foot.
Mr Foot was defeated by Margaret Thatcher by a landslide.
Mrs May’s comments come after UK Brexit chief negotiator Olly Robbins was overheard in a bar in Brussels telling colleagues the Government is planning on giving MPs a choice between a delayed Brexit and Mrs May’s deal.
According to ITV, Mr Robbins said: “The issue is whether Brussels is clear on the terms of the extension.
“In the end they will probably give us an extension.
“Got to make them believe that the week beginning end of March. An extension is possible but if they don’t vote for the deal then the extension is a long one.”
The Tory poll comes after a recent Ipsos MORI poll for the Evening Standard last week, which revealed Mr Corbyn’s net satisfaction rating has dropped to minus 55.
It has gone down from minus 32 in December.
The Ipsos MORI poll showed one in five people trust Mr Corbyn over Brexit and one in six believe he shows strong leadership on it.
Less than a fifth believe Mr Corbyn put the national interest first on Brexit related issues.
Head of political research at Ipsos MORI Gideon Skinner told the Evening Standard the findings of the poll were unusual.
Mr Gideon said this was because Mr Corbyn was up against an unpopular premier.
He said: “Often in our trends when one leader is down another is in the ascendant, but that isn’t the case now.”
Ipsos MORI conducted their poll in early December and interviewed 1,005 adults across Britain.
