|Britain: "up the creek without a paddle"|
Germans and the French were the most opposed to offering Britain a "generous deal" that pays tribute to Britain's role as a neighbour and "important trading partner", according to the YouGov survey.
In both countries, 53 per cent of respondents said it should not expect any favours, compared to 27 per cent who said the EU should offer Britain a "generous deal".
As one EU parliamentarian said: "let's see who they will blame now for their problems - they can't have your cake and eat it also !".
