When did you first attend the SODEM protest outside Parliament and why did you come?
I think it was 12.06.2018 I voted Remain, but it wasn’t until after the Referendum I learnt about the devastation leaving the EU would cause and all the benefits we enjoy being part of the EU. I wanted to be more active. I had been involved locally with BathForEurope and active on Twitter, but it wasn’t enough. A friend told me that I couldn’t do anything, but as soon as I found out about SODEM I had to go to Parliament.
Roughly how old are you?
59 years young
How frequently did you come and when was the last time you attended?
Initially once/twice a week. Then three times, then everyday! Before lockdown.
How far from Westminster do you live and what was your travelling time?
I lived in Somerset, it was about 3 hours each way. Then I lived in the SODEM MADHOUSE.
What’s your favourite memory?
Too many to choose one! But I would probably say the 3rd Meaningful Vote Defeat, despite the pouring rain, the hope and joy in the atmosphere was palpable!
Tell me your story
I wanted to fight Brexit in the memory of my Father, who was rescued from Dunkirk, but died in peacetime in France. I don’t believe he would want us to turn our backs on our European friends and I know he would hate what is happening to our country. I want my son, his partner to enjoy the benefits that I have had, including living and working in Spain.
