One keen voter said: “I can’t think of a better Christmas present than getting rid of our current crop of MPs.”
Another, referring to the Prime Minister, added: “Irrespective of what you think of Boris or his ‘agreement’ I would urge, in fact beg, everyone here supporting Brexit to vote. There is no place for doubt, or ‘why bother, they don’t listen anyway’. We must vote. It will be absolutely essential to vote in force!”

A third added: “Any stress there may be voting at a busy time of the year fades into comparison when compared to the stress these Remainer MPs have unleashed with their underhanded tactics and undemocratic stance and for that reason I would even be prepared to vote on Christmas day to remove them.”
A fourth said: “If we leave on the 31st October Tories will remain but will still require GE to clear out the swamp.
“If they fail then the Brexit Party will get my vote.”
A fifth added: “Yes I would vote in an election before Christmas but it definitely wouldn’t be for the Tory party who are still packed to the rafters with Remainers.
Jeremy Corbyn finally admitted the real reason he keeps denying Boris Johnson a general election
“If you want to get Brexit done as we told them over three years ago to do, then you can only possibly vote for the one and that only party that are 100 percent behind our vote and that’s the Brexit party, any other party will only stop Brexit altogether including the Tory party.”
The poll comes after a week of Brexit mayhem that saw Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn finally admit the real reason he keeps denying Boris Johnson a general election.
Mr Corbyn scooped an eye-watering amount of votes from students after he promised – and the backtracked – on scrapping university fees when then-Prime Minister Theresa May held a snap election in 2017.
But now, the December date Tory leader Mr Johnson has set is at a time universities end their terms, which is a major threat for Labour because many MPs are based in university towns.
Mr Farage has for a long time demanded a clean break Brexit
When asked why he has refused to take part in a general election four times in the last month despite demanding one in the same rhetoric for the past two years, Mr Corbyn said “It’s after many universities end their terms for Christmas.”
Mr Johnson on Tuesday saw MPs vote in favour of his deal in the House of Commons with a majority of 30.
But celebrations were short-lived when a motion followed saw Remainer MPs vote against the timetable proposed by the Prime Minister to get the deal pushed through Parliament in three days on the grounds of there not being enough time to scrutinise it – despite MPs having nearly three-and-a-half years of bickering over Brexit.
Brussels is now considering what length of an Article 50 extension to offer Britain, with the EU refusing to make its decision until it knows whether there will be a general election this side of Christmas.
Mr Corbyn called the December 12 date “odd for many reasons”.
Mr Corbyn appeared on TV after Mr Johnson told him to “man up” and back a national poll.
Speaking to Richard and Judy on This Morning, Mr Corbyn called the December 12 date “odd for many reasons”.
He added it was “so near Christmas” and “after universities finish their terms”.
He said: “I’ve said all along – take no deal off the table, and we’ll have the election.

“No deal. Think what it does. Ford in Bridgend, gone. Nissan in Sunderland, ready to go if they lose their trade access. Airbus in north Wales. And so on all across the country.”
