'Half of voters think politics is broken a new poll has found, amid fresh signs the Brexit chaos is shaking the public's confidence in its politicians.
The survey also found that just one in seven voters believe the Tories and Labour represent the views of the public.
The damning results, contained in a YouGov poll for The Sunday Times, comes as Westminster is in turmoil over Brexit.
Theresa May looks set to suffer a massive and humiliating defeat if she pushes ahead with a Commons vote on her deal on Tuesday night.
She is facing a barrage of calls to tear up her deal, and is considering delaying the vote and heading back to Brussels to try to squeeze more concessions out of the EU.
The poll found that 48 per cent of those asked said that politics is broken, while just 11 per cent said they think it is working well.
Westminster is awash with political plots and leadership rumours amid this Brexit disarray at the heart of Government.
Remainers are seizing upon the chaos to push for another referendum just two years after Britons voted Leave in the historic vote.
And Brexiteers are also gunning for the PM's deal and demanding that she tears up the hated backstop plan and play hardball with the EU on the divorce bill.
Cabinet Office minister David Lidington and Justice Secretary David Gauke have been holding the secret discussions with opposition MPs.
They have also discussed options to push for a Norway-style deal, which would effectively keep the UK in the single market and customs union, and keep free movement.
The revelations, reported in The Sunday Times, will spark fury among Brexiteers who have warned of a plot by Remainer MPs to thwart Brexit.
With the PM's plans plunged into turmoil, civil servants have war-gamed two versions of the UK holding another referendum.'
