The newly-formed Brexit Party, which wants a clean break from the EU, has doubled its lead over other British parties in an opinion poll out Sunday on the European Parliament elections.

The Opinium survey in The Observer newspaper put the Brexit Party of eurosceptic figurehead Nigel Farage on 34 per cent, doubling its lead over the main opposition Labour Party to 13 points in a fortnight — and on course to get more votes than Britain’s two main parties put together.

Labour, on 21 per cent, has dropped seven points while the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats are in third place on 12 per cent, up to five points, on the corresponding poll from two weeks ago.
