2 or 3 times a month. Last one October 2019
How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?
12 miles. One hour on my bicycle

Difficult to say. I always felt better for the companionship of other remainers and shouting at Parliament
Tell me your story
I was aghast at the referendum result and cried all day. I joined various Facebook groups, desperate to do something. I campaigned for pro-EU candidates in by-elections, led my national FB group on the marches joined local groups, went bannering on motorway bridges and went to SODEM whenever I could. I always believed we could stop the madness of Brexit and I spent most of my waking hours on it. I was admin on 4 groups and learned a lot about our politicians and their parties, as well as meeting a lot of wonderful people (all remainers, needless to say). The fact that the cheats and liars of Vote Leave are now in government and that the UK has left the EU has made me fundamentally depressed and frightened.
