A recent British Future poll has found that more than half of the country’s public would like the United Kingdom (UK) to have a closer relationship with the EU after Brexit.

In comparison, just 12 percent of the population said they would prefer a more distant relationship and 27 percent said they would keep the status quo.

Pollsters indicated reported the research was based on a nationally representative survey as well as a series of discussion groups with people in London, Peterborough and Stockport, reports The Independent.

It also found that almost half of Britain thinks the UK’s relationship with the EU is more important for peace, stability and prosperity than our relationship with the US or with Commonwealth nations.

According to the survey, Britons felt most strongly about closer EU collaboration on issues such as counterterrorism, trade, and science/research cooperation.

Six in 10 also supported closer collaboration on migration for work and study, stated the report.
